Blackish robe with a rubi hue, this is a dense, rich wine, but not overdone. Black fruits, peppers, spices, very complex and wrapped up with fine tannins and great acidity. Top notch bottle and looking for more ! Hold if you can, or have fun. — 12 days ago
Peppery with some cherries. Light bodied. Medium finish. Plus acidity. Thirst quenching. Drank with pizza , probably better with meat dish. Great value — 25 days ago
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. — 10 days ago
Pop and pour, notes from 1 hr open. Better than I remember my last btl being, but still not up to the level of that first '11. On the nose: lavender, incense, loads of garrigue, and soft red raspberry..very pure grenache. On the palate: serious acidity, hi-toned red raspberry, more herbal notes, with some salinity, almost olive brine/game, though I believe this is 100% grenache, and attenuated tannin on the finish. This has taken a very savory turn, and the tannin on the finish is slightly attenuated. Yum! — 5 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.
Style Côte-du-Rhone. Le fruit (Noir) est respecté. On retrouve les belles notes de violette poivrée de la Syrah, et le caractère gourmand fraise/caramel de la grenache.. également le côté torréfié, réglisse. Frais et sympa. — 19 days ago
