Le Prince de Courthézon Côtes du Rhône AOC 2016

le-prince-de-CWhen looking for a Cotes du Rhone that delivers generosity as well as value, this quaffable red will please.  Le Prince de Courthézon is produced from grapes sourced close to Chateauneuf du Pape, which produces the boldest expressions of Grenache blends in the region.  While it is does not quite have the richness of a Chateauneuf, there is still plenty to love.

In the glass, some fragrant vanilla and nutmeg spice wraps around cherry and raspberry fruit enhanced with liquorice, fennel and earth.  Lush oak provides a fleshy backdrop to the fresh, ripe cherry on the finish.  This is a wine that you can enjoy with or without food, and it will definitely win friends.  It is a spicy warm red that you can take to dinner or curl up on the couch with.

    I could not find any nutritional information on this particular wine. My fitness pal calculated the calories for a 14.5% red wine at 131 calories for a 125 ml serving. I hope that helps. – lisa
