Winemaker Notes

From a high altitude vineyard near Roaix, at the northern fringe of Southern Rhone, this wine is a blend of very old Grenache and Syrah. The vineyard's elevation gives this dark and concentrated Cotes du Rhone its unique finesse and balance.

This wine was neither fined nor filtered before bottling in order to preserve its personality and intensity. And although this wine could be enjoyed young, it will develop its full character much later and will keep its freshness for at least 20 years after bottling.

Blend: 85% Grenache, 15% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

Made with fruit from both Cairanne and Domazon, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Cotes du Rhone (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) is a sleeper of the vintage. With excellent texture as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel, this sensational Cotes du Rhone exhibits lusty black cherry, raspberry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of lavender, subtle smoke and earth ... Buy this one by the case. Range: 90-92

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby. Fresh red fruits and spices on the nose and palate. Gains weight with air but doesn't lose any of its vivacity. Juicy, taut wine with good energy and lift on the spicy, persistent finish.
Range: 89-90
