Domaine Le Grand Ribe 2007 Côtes du Rhône $12

This organic wine, certified by Ecocert (the European Union€™s organic watchdog agency), offers gorgeous aromas of lavender, herbes de provence,
violets and stones, as if someone ground up the famous stones of
Chateauneuf-du-Papes in a blender and filtered the wine through them.
Earthy as it is, the wine has enough acidity to be refreshing. It gets
better with every sip and will reward 2-3 years aging or decanting a
couple hours in advance of dinner. It’s a terrific value.

Imported and distributed by Monsieur Touton Selections. Reviewed in my Washington Post column of January 14, 2009.
