Domaine Coste Chaude has been a favorite of ours here at Mile High for several years because their wines deliver a picture perfect expression of the vineyards and the vintage from which they came. Their Organic 2017 Visan “Madrigal” is a lush, generous Cotes du Rhone that will delight lovers both Old world and New with its tempting bouquet of mid-summer herb garden, raspberry jam simmering on the stove, anise, violet, and cedar. What a pleasure it is to swirl and sniff! Decadently layered with both fruit and non-fruit aromas, it is sure to excite before you even go in for a sip! One quick sip provides instant confirmation that you’ve got something really good in your glass as the sensation of fruit picked at the absolute peak of the season bursts onto the palate. Ripe red plums and blueberry jam sit astride a kiss of sweet fruit tannin and soft, companionable acidity to create a palate that is opulent without being extravagant. Few Reds are more versatile than a well made Cotes du Rhone. Drink it alone on a chilly evening with your favorite blanket and a good book or pair it up with a hearty meal composed of all the bountiful veggies that the local farmers have been harvesting as we near the end of the season. Either way, this one is a perfect candidate for your new “House Red”.
Food Pairing:This vintage of Coste Chaude’s Visan “Madrigal” is a touch less spicy and lower in acidity than some previous vintages that we’ve tasted. I love how accessible it makes the wine feel on the palate. I think it will absolutely crush it with a wedge of warm brie situated amongst a garden of fruit preserves, cured meats, olives, and crusty bread. In fact, just tying that is making me want to take the afternoon off to go procure those supplies and a shady spot from which to while away the afternoon.
