2016 Vin de Pays de Vaucluse Rouge

Domaine de Durban

2016 Vin de Pays de Vaucluse <i>Rouge</i> Domaine de Durban - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



I'll try not to portray this custom Rhône bargain—the best French value in our portfolio—as more than what it is. No, my connoisseur’s nose did not pick up wafting aromas of singed sandalwood, thrice-cooked bacon, or pureed overripe fig compote. Nor does it possess a stupefying, mind-boggling, 100-point finish. And while it will certainly hold up for several years, this is not the wine you should safeguard in your cellar for half a century. But it does provide a wholly satisfying mouthful of chewy black fruit, a dark, supple, tender fleshiness, and some grip that recalls its rustic terroir. Don’t miss out on this unfiltered eleven-dollar delight. –Anthony Lynch
