Les Genets Red

Southern Rhone wines are the value red wines from France at the moment.

Today's representative was:  Chusclan Les Genets, Cotes du Rhone Villages, 2000 ($13).

It didn't really dazzle me.  I thought this wine was nice, yet it competes in a really tough (& crowded) price category.

For this reason, it rings in at two stars

The Skinny
Chisclan Les Genets
'Esprit de Terroir' Cotes du Rhone Villages, 2000 ($13)
Medium intensity indigo in color
Restrained aromas of red fruits, pepper and ripe tomato
In the mouth it was medium-bodied with subtle tannins.
Earthy flavors mixed with dried cherries
** (out of 5)
