Promesses De France Cotes Du Rhone 2020

Dark red hue with some intensity and youthful purple. Bouquet is full of medium dark berries with white pepper at the edge and a touch of menthol. It needs to breathe. (With some air, it yields more goodness and is yielding some bright fresh sweet red berry goodness with spices.)

Palate-- Mouth watering tannins, bright acidity, fruit is a bit tight--again needs to breathe--but there is some nice structure here and a very nice Classic GSM profile as Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre (I am assuming by the profile) is the classic Rhone blend. 

*After checking it is indeed a GSM blend and is very well done for the ridiculous price of about $10.

I see some "community reviews" of this wine giving it an average of 84.5 points. That's pretty tough grading. This is a value Cotes Du Rhone and is worth looking to snag if your see one. I am pairing it tonight with homemade beef stew and it will be great so raise a glass!
