"Just across the Rhône river from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this 88-acre estate is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe (in Châteauneuf-du-Pape). The 2001 Baron Louis is to Côtes du Rhône what "War and Peace" is to the novel---huge, focused, rich and concentrated with an aroma of violets and a hint of rosemary.
