Plenty of body
Stands up to the muscle bound Calif Cabs, and gives depth and mouth watering nuanced flavor of fresh fruit. Fabulous nose and finish! If anyone disagrees, I'll buy theirs.
Keeping the order until proper shipping time paid off. The wine is everything you described. It's overall success was proven when it was paired with venison sausage, stewed apples and cheese grits and came out on top!
Cotes du Rhone
Really delicious. Different from some others we've gotten because the Signac is rich without being too much. One of the best values of the year in our book.
We've bought a lot of 2007 Rhone wines on WineAccess. At the price, despite the great writeup, we weren't expecting too much. At this point, we should know better. The Combe D'Enfer was great. Dark and juicy, but we can see why the sommelier liked it so much. Unbelievable on the dinner table. Should have bought more.
Is there more?
Finishing up the last of the case
Has gotten better with some aging. Benefits from some chilling and opening and letting it breathe. Still never quite lived up to the hype.
Needs to be opened 2 hours...at least
THis really was flat until 2 hours of sitting out. Finally the deep rich berry came out. THis is a soft, medium body Cote du Rhone. I like it, but I have had very similar quality at about half this bottle price. Still may have some legs in the next year or two.
light on the finish, but extremely tasty. we loved it
Better than average Cotes Du Rhone. .
Definately a wine to share with friends
Outstanding value for an extremely quaffable wine. Very balanced effort. Am very happy I purchased a case.
Full bodied smooth mouthfilling excellent
On pulling the cork, we knew we were in for a treat. Aromas of sweet dark fruit, a bit of rock and a touch of acid. We decanted this jewel about an hour before dinner when we had it with chateaubriand in a simple marchand de vin with Julia's brussel sprouts and roasted baby potatoes. It held its own in this pairing, not overwhelmed by the richness or slight acidity of the sauce. I wish it had had a longer finish. Wish I had purchased a case.
Can every year be 2007 in the southern rhone?
So many great wines and this was one of my favorites.
good everyday wine
solid effort for minor Rhone wine, pleased at this price point.
poor quality to price ratio
This wine is ok, drinkable, but not particularly impressive. My heart sank when I looked it up and saw that it's selling for $8 less per bottle than what I paid on WA. I have always wondered whether these really were good deals - guess not. I would feel better about this wine at the lower price point.
Pretty average wine
Somewaht of a disappointment
Signac Cotes du Rhone
I am somewhat disappointed with this Rhone. Typically I would expect more body with a better finish, it seems a bit thin to me. Maybe it sat in the FEDEX truck too long but no signs of crystals. I will try another bottle in a few weeks to see if it is my current lack of taste and not the wine.
