WINE OF THE WEEK

January 17, 2001|By Michael Dresser

1999 Domaine les Grands Bois Cotes du Rhone ($10). This earthy, richly fruity, full-bodied red wine with deep blackberry flavor offers lush texture and an abundance of rustic charm. There's a touch of a barnyard aroma similar to that found in many a red Burgundy - something that is more pleasant to the nose than it looks in print. This charming, robust wine is well suited for winter drinking with hearty stews and roasts. This excellent value is well worth buying by the case - not for long cellaring but for use over the next year as a house red.
