Sometimes simple is best.
Fancy blends and attempts to be classy are all very well but often the old ways are the best.
This spicy Taste the Difference 2010 Côtes du Rhône-Villages is proper stuff that has lots of fruit and quality but doesn’t need to try too hard.
Lovely with soft, rich cheeses or braised beef and extremely gluggable on its own at a good price.
Relax and enjoy.
