Domaine Courtois Cotes du Rhone La Source is a beautiful red wine gem from the southern Rhone region of France. The Domaine Courtois is a Jaume family-owned estate going back several generations. Pascal and Richard Jaume have now taken over from their father and are pursuing the tradition of quality that their father Claude started. The vineyards are located in an outstanding terroir of the Rhone Valley, the Vinsobres that combines the advantages of both the southern and the northern Rhone Valley.
"The 2016 Cotes du Rhone La Source, a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, comes out of the chute a little tarry and chocolaty but give it a little time and those dark elements recede, letting red cherry and raspberry fruit come to the fore. Hints of thyme and bay leaf add interest, and there's even a slight note of licorice. This wine ultimately offers a medium-bodied, silky-textured drinking experience that should be enjoyed over the next few years."-Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 89 points!
