A robust red wine from the southern French region of the Cote du Rhone. This full-bodied red blend features aromas of fleshy ripe blackberry, dark plum, black pepper and smoke. Great value for the price. Pair with a grilled steak or hampburger.

Reviews and Ratings

Nick Hirons rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This cuvee, coming from 50+ year old vines, is a year in, year out value that's a no-brainer. Notes of black raspberries, cassis and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, charming, elegant and polished red that has no hard edges and a supple finish. It's perfect for drinking over the coming 4-5 years with grilled meats and fine cheese.
Fiona Burke rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Charles Tort is a gem of a wine! I love the 2013, but the 2015 is deeper, richer and slightly spicier. I don't tire of this wine and it a perfect 'go-to' for every occasion. It's soft fruit is extremely approachable but it has a depth of character which makes it work with richer foods. It's a great bridge between Old World and New World styles--heaps of fresh, ripe fruit, balanced acidity and more complexity that you'd expect to find in this price point.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
