great value for money

5 stars

This wine really improves after being allowed to breathe for several hours. It is a medium bodied, smooth wine that drinks very well with fish and poultry as well as with lighter red meats. It needs to be brought up to about 65deg to taste it at its best. For its price, it is hard to beat.

What a delight!

4 stars

I have rarely enjoyed such a delightful glass of Rhone needs to be at room temperature but glugged into a glass it is sure to delight. I won't hesitate to but this again.

Slightly disappointing

3 stars

Whilst I have been drinking this wine for a few years now the 2011 La Chasse Cote Du Rhone was a much better drink than this 2013. Compared to Tescos Finest Cote Du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu this 2013 vintage La Chasse is not even close to the quality or the value for money of the Tesco Finest Cote Du Rhone.

Disappointing

3 stars

Having read two 5* reviews of this wine I was disappointed. I thought it was quite rough and certainly would not pay full price for it. Don't know how anyone could give it 5 stars!

Superb

5 stars

Excellant French wine with masses of juicy fruit flavours and a hint of spice.

La Chasse 'Magnifique'

5 stars

Darkish cherry red and vibrant in the glass, aromas of rich dark fruits, smokey bonfires and herbs. Light to medium bodied, taste wise, dark and chewy, rustic, herbal, spice, chocolate, figs, meaty and very smokey with slightly chalky soft tannins. Great with food, great on it's own, recommended. Pretty decent and enjoyable !
