Domaine du Val des Rois Valreas Signature, 2007

Tasted alongside the Domaine Sainte Anne Cotes du Rhone (below), this Valreas eventually reveals itself as the superior wine. It is, however, a CDR Villages and cost about twice as much as the Sainte-Anne.

Deep, bright crimson. Shy at first. Blueberries, dark cherries, lavender, spice. Now it's blossoming. An understated beauty. Clean, fresh, youthful fruit. Wild berries and a hint of black pepper on the finish. A very fine Valreas.
