Franck Balthazar, Cotes du Rhone, 2018

$22.99
Franck Balthazar, a third generation winemaker in Cornas, is a purist. Nothing but the best grapes, nothing but the best terroir, nothing but the best and most precise winemaking.

On tasting his Cotes du Rhone, we were blown away by its utter freshness. There's light, bright red raspberry and an aroma like walking through a rose garden in summertime. It's joyful and delicious, yet in the style of Franck's higher-end cuvées, with its brambly fruit and whiffs of herbs and smoke.
