2007 Domaine Galevan Cotes-du-Rhone Paroles de Femme

2009/07/28

The 2007 Paroles de Femme was released a couple months ago here in Ontario and I’ve gone through many bottles in that time. It’s always a challenge to find wines that punch above their weight (or sticker price in this case). At $15CAD, this wine more than fits the bill as something that can be either a midweek quaffer or something when people are visiting on the weekend. The wine pairs particularly well with grilled lamb or beef.

Label for 2007 Domaine Galevan Cotes-du-Rhone Paroles de Femme 2007 Domaine Galevan Côtes du Rhône Paroles de Femme

Dark, almost opaque ruby/black colour. Pretty nose of herbes de Provence, black fruit – plums and blackcurrant, vanilla, black licorice, raspberry. Full-bodied, rich, with notes of raspberry, grilled meat, peach, spice, and vanilla on the palate. Good persistence on the 30-35s finish. Puts on weight and shows more lush fruit on the palate with a bit of air. Really impressive for the price point ($15CAD). Something that would be an interesting ringer in a flight of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, as the quality is high. Other bottles have been even better than this. 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, the rest Carignan and Cinsault. (89 pts.)
