Wow, this is amazing for a 12-year old Cotes du Rhone. Nose almost reminds me of mature Bordeaux (good shit, not regular Bordeaux). Cedar, earthy, dark spicy blackberry, iodine. Totally resolved and balanced in the mouth, with a remarkable fruit presence for a 12-yr. old. Tannins still there but super soft. Good acids. Just wow. — 7 days ago
Côte-du-Rhone style. The fruit (Black) is respected. We find the beautiful notes of peppery violet of Syrah, and the greedy character strawberry/caramel of the grenache.. also the roasted side, liquorice. Nice and cool.

I like this estate, their wines are always evocative and emit a regional personality. This was my first time trying this, the entry level cuvée - it's a plump, juicy little number and an excellent value. Fruit-sweet, with plum, lavender and some black tea notes, along with a cherry pit quality on the finish. Finishes with a peppery kick. It's got a lot of meat on the bones and is definitely warm, but the 15+% isn't too obvious or off-putting. Nice cocktail wine. — a month ago
Peppery with some cherries. Light bodied. Medium finish. Plus acidity. Thirst quenching. Drank with pizza , probably better with meat dish. Great value — 22 days ago
