2012 Domaine de l'Espigouette (Bernard Latour) Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu

2012 Domaine de l’Espigouette (Bernard Latour) Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu. This is the best of the CdRs I have been tasting lately. Only alightly better than the Pegau Setiers and it absolutely stomps the Chave Mon Coeur. Closest thing to a baby CdP one can buy. Dark fruit, licorice and even some kirsch liqueur. This is an astounding value at $18 at Spec’s here in Austin. So good and easily worthy of a case buy.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
