"The medium ruby-colored 2018 Côtes Du Rhône La Dame Rousse checks in as 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, and the rest Carignan and Mourvèdre, raised all in tank. It has a classic bouquet of ripe cherries, strawberries, flowers, and spice. This carries to a medium-bodied Côtes Du Rhône that has a layered, elegant texture, moderate concentration yet terrific balance, and a great finish. This is as charming and drinkable as they come."
