Divit’s Pick: 2015 Clos du Mont Olivet Côtes Du Rhône, Vieille Vignes, $16.99

This month I am picking a wine that should surprise no one as I have been a fan of this producer for more than a decade. Run by Thierry Sabon, the estate makes a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape, but the bargain is this Côtes Du Rhône with its dusty red berry fruit and supple texture. It’s made from 80 percent old vine Grenache, with the rest split between Syrah and Carignan. Less brawny than the Clos Du Caillou, (another favorite) I like this for its subtlety and charm, the pretty side of Côtes Du Rhône that drinks like a charm.
