Delas Saint-Esprit Côtes du Rhône (France 2007)


Found this lovely French wine at World Market, on sale for $10, which is a great deal. And right now there is quite a selection of sale wines at WM, with discounts on just about everything from cheap wine to those with a more celebratory price tag. Check it out, I’m sure you’ll find one or more of your favorites on sale as well as some new adventures. Including this one.

The Saint-Esprit has a jammy, oaky fragrance and a beautiful dark ruby color, as you can see. The aromas follow through with juicy plum and raspberry flavors with a touch of smoke and cocoa. The wine is velvety feeling and the flavors linger on the tongue in a most pleasing way.

We enjoyed this wine with sausage, pasta, and veggies, but it would be delightful with pork roast or duck. And, it’s the kind of wine you could proudly bring as a hostess gift to all the upcoming holiday parties.
