Domaine Mas Du Bouquet Côtes du Rhône

french wine  %tages Domaine Mas Du Bouquet Côtes du RhôneThe Mas Du Bouquet vineyard, owned by the Manganelli family for over a century, consists of 45 hectares on the plateau Garrigues, just outside the village of Vacqueyras.  They are most known for their Vacqueyras appellation wines, but they also release this one with the Côtes du Rhône designation.
I really loved this wine as a fresh, fruit-filled wine.  The earthy characteristics found in many additional Côtes du Rhône wine are very subtle with this one.  But it is subdue an enjoyable and very affordable wine.

The blend in this wine is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.  A fruity and refreshing nose sets the tone with blackberry, plum and hints of strawberry.  There is also a leather aspect on the nose.  The palate is slightly off balance by acidity, it’s just a touch too tart.  There is excellent plum and blackberry flavor on the palate, with subtle tannins and sharp spice.  The alcohol gives a nice heat to http://1000-facts-about-wine.com this wine. There is a nice combination of spice, tannin and fruit on the end, which is relatively long.
