90% Syrah, 10% Grenache
Domaine d’Andezon is the most famous wine from one of our favourite co-operative wineries, Vignerons d’Estézargues. If you’ve not tried their Cuvee des Copains then it’s very much worth your time as a fun fruit led Cotes du Rhone.
But back to this one…Andezon is a full-bodied, meaty powerful red showing lots of dark fruit flavours, richness and complexity. From a single plot in a single village in the Southern Rhone, it shows that complex, savoury, chocolatey, iron rich, depth of flavour that we’d associate with far more expensive wines, think baby Hermitage. Whatever you call it, this is one of those wines that punches well above it weight and shows the depth and fruit to easily slip into the role of our favourite big steak red for chilly nights and richer meals.
