Our favourite Cotes-du-Rhone, the Vidal-Fleury 2005, is no longer available (I have to say we have drunk our fair share of the Aussie contingent...), so we tried the 2007 vintage.
Although still very good, it was not as smooth as the 2005 vintage.
This triggered a new search, and we went onto try the Saint-Cosmes 2009, and the Clos Petite Bellane 2007. Read our review on our Wine page
