2013 La Bastide St Dominique Cotes-du-Rhone

Why We Love It:

In a nutshell, the Bonnet family delivers Burgundian style elegance and sophistication while growing wines in France’s rugged and expressive southern Rhone terroirs. And while the reserve blends and top Chateauneuf-du-Pape bottlings from this family estate are rapidly emerging as collectible and sought-after gems, we find ourselves consistently taken by the sturdy and well-made food-friendly reds, which offer remarkable value far exceeding the humble Cotes-du-Rhone pedigree. As we slowly emerge from the long slumber of winter, this red is precisely the kind of well-priced bottle you’ll be pleased to have on-hand as you begin contemplating early season BBQ dinners.
