    Critical Acclaim:

    Now owned by Guigal, this bottling should be fairly easy to find in the United States, with 35,000 cases imported. Its dense, youthful purple color presages intense aromas of jammy black and red berry fruit, while gamy notes, black olives and dried herbs add complexity. The blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Carignan is long and smooth on the finish, with supple tannins and just the right grip.

    The current vintage on the market is the 2007 Cotes du Rhone, a dark ruby/purple wine dominated by Grenache, with gobs of fruit, medium body, and loads of purity and density. The 2009 version of this, which has not yet been bottled, is not as exuberant and fruity, and shows slightly more tannin.

    Had this originally at the Melting Pot, but a 2004 vintage. This is just as tasty.
