Yet another remarkable value from the southern Rhone! This has a lovely, fruit drenched nose of ripe plum-strawberry...

Full-bodied, balanced, and flavourful, the 2010 Château de Galifay is a fine Cairanne. Dark-opaque ruby in colour, it...

Located just over an hour from the Mediterranean Sea, Cairanne is the western-most village in the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation.   This outstanding value shows aromas of strawberry and sweet spices.  Medium bodied and uplifting with hints minerality followed by a core of plum sweetness that lasts through to the finish.  Sip it solo or with tapas on the side.  Tasted Nov 2012

As a fan of Cotes Du Rhone, this wine is exceptional value!

After an hour of decantation, the nose entices of the spicy, dark berry sensations that await. Velvet on the palate, with a middle of dark fruit, the finish is long and relinquishes to earthy chalk....begging for the process to start again.

Very ripe, full-bodied Cotes du Rhone. Soft, approachable, displaying notes of blueberries, supported by notes of herbs. Some heat and alcohol is noticeable on the finish, but this is a solid red all in all. For drinking over the next few years. Tasted Oct 2012.

Plum and cherry wood aromas from cork. Very nice lavender, violet and toasty wood and licorice aromas. Medium-bodied with nicely integrated tannins. Sweet dark fruit flavours on the palate with some spice kicking in midway, leading to a smooth, herbal-note, medium-length finish. Very good acidity. An easy drinking red with some substance. Delicious. Tasted Oct 27, 2012.
