Les Trois Couronnes Cotes du Rhone, 2007
Now fully developed and perfect for drinking, Les Trois Couronnes is still widely available for about $6 or $7 a bottle. It is a straightforward Cotes du Rhone with spicy blueberry fruit, ripe but not overly so. Very traditional style, somewhat rustic, probably produced with whole cluster fermentation. I like this wine but for a few dollars more, I would go for the Delas Saint Esprit or the Altitude 500 Cotes du Ventoux.
