Domaine Guy Mousset – Red Blend, 2015

  • Basic info: Domaine Guy Mousset “Cotes du Rhone” Red Blend, France, 2015.
  • Type: Red
  • Price estimate: $13 (Total Wine)
  • Look: Very dark red, almost black plum. Minimal legs
  • Smell: Grape jelly and a little wood on the nose.
  • Taste: Bob and I disagreed on what this one tasted like. He got minerality, plum, black cherry and current with a dark, almost earthy end. I got the black cherry, but I had blackberry with only a tiny bit of mineral and cranberry.
  • Conclusions: We both really liked this wine even though it tasted totally different to each of us. It was a little on the thin side, but that made for a nice sipping wine. It was super smooth and very enjoyable.
  • Other notes: I wanted to get the rose from this producer, but Total Wine was out of it. I never remember the name so I was that annoying person who just kept saying I will know it when I see the label. Somehow the guy at Total Wine took this as a challenge, found this bottle and asked if I was looking for the rose version. I was. He found me a substitute (since they were out) and said the red is just as good, if you like red wine. I do like red wine, so I decided to try it and I am very glad I did. It isn’t a special wine, but a great every day red.
  • From the bottle: No bottle notes. 13% alcohol by volume.
