La Ferme du Mont Première Côte Côtes du Rhône 2017

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  251645

While no 2016s were submitted, the 2017s look to be brilliant wines pretty much across the board. Exotic, with lots of spice, sappy green herbs, flowers, and orange peel notes, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Première Côte is medium-bodied, fresh and elegant on the palate. It's not a powerhouse yet has finesse and elegance. The blend is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre, brought up all in concrete tanks. Score - 88-90. (Jeb Dunnuck,, Aug. 28, 2018)
