Dear Arthur's Cellar Wine Club Member:
We were able to secure another 20 cases of the terrific 2018 ‘Les Nôtes de Louis’ Côtes du Rhône from Domaine Giuliani and they are now available at LCBO.com. This big, bold, sassy wine from the Southern Rhône pairs wonderfully well with anything coming off the BBQ or from your favourite pizza palour.
Per usual, I’d be pleased to order for you. Just let me know what you would like and to which LCBO store you want it sent.
2018 Côtes du Rhône "Les Notes de Louis" - 15.8% Alc./Vol. $18.90 the bottle LCBO Product No. 790873
This glorious Côte du Rhône is made from almost 100% Grenache - and the Giulianis are very, very talented Grenache growers. This robust beauty is a brilliant ruby colour and exhibits a pronounced, lively nose of raspberries, plums and cherries. In the mouth these persist, accompanied by black currents and hints of pepper and licorice. It is big and wonderfully round and supple with silky tannins and surprising length. This stunner will go marvellously with savoury tarts and grilled meats, in other words, perfect for the BBQ. While drinking brilliantly well now (I’d decant a couple of hours before enjoying), it will keep nicely for at least three or four years. This is terrific stuff.
