2013 Calvet Côtes du Rhône Heritage de Calvet Côtes du Rhône Villages

Red Rhone Blend more

6/2/2015 - Exonian Likes this wine: 88 points

A surprisingly light and refined wine with a nose of smoky dark fruits - blackberries and dark cherries, and a back note of menthol/eucalyptus. The palate is medium in acidity, and medium bodied, and has a flavour of cooed blackberries with a finishing peppery twist. Great qpr , perfect with food , and light enough to enjoy on its own.

Nice flowery bouquet with cranberry notes.
Dark crimson with purple core and gooey legs.
So far, so good; right?
But then... a merciless attack of white vinegar and grape seed oil on your palate lets you know you've been deceived.
Thank God the finish is not very long!

Ruby color, with some browning along the edges. Dried blackberries and raspberries with a hint of saddle leather on the nose. High acid, light body.

11/30/2014 - Paul Dove Does not like this wine: 78 points

A little bit of spice and plum but this is far too flabby in texture and dilute in flavour to bother with. Don't be fooled by the expensive-looking bottle, this is bland, generic wine and a poor effort from Calvet in presenting entry-level Cahors.

I was wary of this given that Calvet is such a big brand. I was worried in particular it was going to be dumbed down for an international market ie over-oaked and too sweet and smooth with no structure and no terroir. But it's nice stuff. Dark fruits and serious authentic flavour with a little bit of grippiness make it a good choice as an accompaniment to food. Good value at £5.99.

The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis). The body is medium/full. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

golden yellow colour of a very mature wine
dried apricot rich aroma & flavours, silky, round, mouth filling, just at a very ripe stage of fruit that makes it very enjoyable, more sweet, not as dry as it was younger.

Not a touch on the Chapoutier wine from this AOC, light and not much length or character, reflecting its price I guess.
Shame it seems that Chapoutier is selling his vineyard, as that was exceptional value for money.

Standard textbook low-priced Bordeaux. Nose is quite fruity with lots of blackcurrants, green notes, woody ceder, and some vanilla and buttery notes. There is a nice slight flowery component as well. Medium- acidity, lots of fruit, slight bitterness, some oaky tannins and a decent length and intensity. A good effort and worked well with the cheese.

Okay I guess. Very lemony nose, and high acidity on the palate, matched with rich creaminess. Little complexity, however. Drinkable, but unremarkable. [Screwcap; 13% abv; Sainsbury's, on offer <£7]

Tart cherries on the nose with cigarbox, earthiness and leather. More tart cherries and red fruit on the palate. Tannins are gone. Well past its prime at this point, all tart.
