Fabulous Case-Worthy Cotes du Rhone
September 15, 2018 at 7:02 pm #5514
For $6.89 I couldn’t resist trying the 2017 Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages. You see lots of Cotes du Rhone, but you see much less wine from the Cotes du Rhone Villages AOC. In theory, it’s made from better grapes from a smaller area. In this case, that potential is achieved big time.
The Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre blend privide deep, generous and earthy red fruit. Terrific, saturating mouth feel. Moderate tannins and great acidity keep things going for a pretty long, smooth finish. This is something I’d gladly pay $15 for.
Definitely worth buying a case or two to have as house wine. This is one of the greatest bargains I’ve encountered.September 15, 2018 at 7:16 pm #5515

Thats always a good pick. Hope to find near me and get a review up. Glad to hear the current vintage is a winner.

I tried this wine based on the reviews in this blog. This is a good wine and an excellent value. I will buy it again.October 12, 2018 at 4:38 pm #5587
I finally found the ’17 Kirkland Cotes due Rhone Villages and will be posting the review tomorrow. It is excellent as everyone here has said, certainly one to stock up on since it’s only $7.October 13, 2018 at 12:25 pm #5589

I found this one in Indy, and picked up 6 bottles based on the reviews.October 18, 2018 at 5:28 pm #5601
Loved it! Definitely case worthy at this price.September 28, 2019 at 9:19 am #7437
It is back and 6.99 a bottle here in Minnesota. Got 6 cases yesterday. Won’t last long.
Cheaper than Fiji bottled water!September 29, 2019 at 8:48 am #7442
Thanks. I’ll be on the lookout for it.November 14, 2019 at 10:56 am #7582
Has anyone seen this wine around Indianapolis lately? I see in the comments that there is at least one other person from around here.November 14, 2019 at 11:12 am #7583
I tried a couple of bottles of the new vintage. I liked the previous one better, although this one still rates as a very good buy.November 17, 2019 at 7:27 am #7593
I’m in the Indy area they didn’t have any last week in Castleton. I saw it last at Michigan Rd store, but that was a few weeks ago and there weren’t a lot of cases left. You might want to call Greenwood as in the past when I’ve inquired about something I couldn’t find, they had it. Good Luck!December 17, 2019 at 11:04 am #7677
What does everyone think of wine.com as far as selection and value, I have been purchasing a good amount through them, but Costco will always be the goto.December 24, 2019 at 1:34 pm #7708
Regarding wine.com, as an online retailer they certainly have an extensive selection but typically I see them consistently 20% more expensive than many other online retailers and Total Wine, not to mention Costco. I often check them to pull up the professional reviews for a wine I may be considering but not much else. Occasionally they run some shipping deals but given their high wine prices it’s not the value you might think it is.
