Alleno & Chapoutier is a passion project between Yannick Alleno - who currently holds 90 Michelin Stars - and top Rhone Winemaker, Michel Chapoutier - a man with forth 100 point scores to his name. Their Cote du Rhone displays stunning pedigree at an unbeatable price. The aromatics show blackberry preserve with layers of tobacco and lilacs with cocoa and spice. The mouthfeel is complete with plenty of dark fruit rounded out by excellent acidity and burly tannins that lead to a lengthy finish.
