Dark-opaque ruby in colour, the 2009 Première Côte (tasted out of a very poor glass) reveals fresh notes of cherried...

Seems to be a lightly TCA-tainted sample, but beneath the dusty earth there's some inviting licorice and red plum...

The 2009 La Ferme Du Mont Première Côte Côtes Du Rhône 2009, composed of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, has intense aromas of blueberry, prune, caramel, smoke and faint cedar on the nose and blueberry and raspberry on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine, with notable tannins, balanced acidity and a medium to long, smooth finish. It is a food friendly wine that can also be enjoyed by itself; drink now – 2020. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts. Tasted at La Ferme Du Mont luncheon hosted by Stéphane Vedeau July/13.

Blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Medium-intensity aromas of plum, blackberry and hints of currants. Palate is medium-bodied with flavours of blackberry liquer, kirsch, black currant, cherry and spice. Light tannic grip and a finish that is a touch hot. Could be enjoyed now or in 3-4 years. Tasted July/2013.
