Domaine André Brunel Côtes du Rhône Sommelongue 2016

The Domaine André Brunel Côtes du Rhône Sommelongue is an elegantly crafted Côtes du Rhône sourced from a single plot of land located to the north of Orange. A blend dominated by Grenache, (85%) with Syrah (10%) and Mourvèdre (5%) this red wine punches above its weight. Spicy, ripe and velvety with notes of coffee, this is traditionally styled, but with a modern twist.
