La Bastide Saint Dominique Côtes du Rhône Jules Rochbonne Rouge 2021
This estate makes serious Cotes-du-Rhone that will easily stand in for a Chateauneuf-du-Pape (but at 1/3rd the price!) The Jules Rochebonne is a red beauty with tons of black and blue fruits, roasted herbs, and hints of chocolate in a medium to full-bodied mouth-filling, chewy and rich style. It drinks beautifully now and has outstanding aging potential. It is a big, rich, seductive and very complex red. Plateau of enjoyment from 2022-2030.
