Domaine Audran-Roche, Cotes du Rhone, France, 2018
(Pairing suggestion - 50 day aged fore rib of beef)
Domaine Roche Audran have been making wine since 1998, but moved to Biodynamic farming in 2006. The wine is made up of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. A very classic expression of the southern Rhone, the wine is beautifully perfumed of red and black fruits, elderberry, raspberry and blackcurrant dominate the nose with a touch savouriness of mediteranean herbs and smoke. The syrah adds some spice of black pepper making the wine invitingly complex.
