Wine Review: 2009 Les Vignerons d'Estézargues Signargues La Granacha VV
I don't often post wine reviews here anymore. Not sure they ever very helpful. However, when I find things locally that I think are interesting, I will occasionally make a recommendation. I recently tried the Les Vignerons d'Estezargues Signarues, which turns out to be a pretty good wine for $15.
Signargues is the furthest south of the Cotes du Rhone Villages Appellation and it spreads out over 4 different communities: Domazan, Estozargues, Rochefort du Gard and Saze. This wine is bottled without fining or filtration and clocks in at a respectable 14.5% alcohol. Despite not being a big fine of grenache form the southern rhone valley, I like this wine. It tastes like a rich and spicy Beaujolais, it's got fruit and a heady dose of acidity to keep things lively. I drank it on the cool side with some carne arsada and was quite happy with the wine. It can be found around town for $15.
