Once again an absolute winner of a wine, this bottom-line Syrah from Yves Cuilleron hits all the right notes and represents terrific value at around £13/btl.
I’ve enjoyed this wine before, but Matt Walls of Decanter, whose column on sub-£20 Rhône wines I recently read, describes its predominant flavours quite accurately as ‘blood, blackberry, blood orange; tangy, balsamic’. I’d add to this a hint of white chocolate, cranberry and Worcestershire sauce. This wine lacks the intensity of fruit that makes much of the northern Rhône so special, but it’s nonetheless a terrific bottling that is a great bastion both for Yves Cuilleron and the Collines Rhodaniennes. — 18 days ago
Razor clean, bright red and blue fruit, sappy resinous herbs. — a month ago
