AOC Côtes du Rhone Villages Magnum
Few wines are as famous around the world as those from the Côtes du Rhône region of France. This bottle may be pricey, but it's one you must try at least once in your life. With its amazing terroir and 60-year old vines, the organic Château Rochecolombe produces some of the best wines in the area. Bottled specifically for Vintage Roots, this wine is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. The aromas of fruitcake and rich spices will enchant your nose, and you'll love the pure red fruit flavours. Unfiltered and unoaked to maintain purity of fruit, this big red is perfect for Christmas or any dinner party - magnums always make a great statement on the table.
Côtes du Rhône Villages is a superior appelation to the standard Côtes du Rhône, and grapes must come from superior villages in the region.
Château Rochecolombe has been family owned for four generations and they take production as seriously today as ever. They are very selective in their 15 hectare vineyard, and when dealing with old vines with lower yields, that shows a level of dedication.
