2004 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne, Cotes-du-Rhone

This was a nice Cotes-du-Rhone. Made up of about 30% grenache, with syrah and mourvedre, it is classic in style. Wine had a nice nose with just hints of fruit. It was light on the tongue, with a nutty flavor... sort of like chestnuts, I think. We had this wine by itself, and not with a meal. Cat didn't remember this one, either, and has asked me to record her impressions while we are ACTUALLY tasting the freaking wine. I have promised to do so. We liked this bottle and think it would be a great house wine.

cost - $12.99 on sale from $14.99

wine commando rating (1-10) - 8

Sounds dreamy, but dearest wine connaseurs, what do you have in store for the white wine lover of the life that is leisure?
