This blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre offers a full-bodied, rich and concentrated style to go with classic black fruits (currants, hints of cassis), crushed rock-like minerality, toasted spice and earth. Brought up all in demi-muids, it’s a blockbuster style Rasteau that will keep for a decade or more.” Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate #228 (Dec. 2016), 92-94 Points
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah. Organic. More fine and elegant than the Les Trois Sœurs, the Côtes du Rhône Villages Cuvee Gabrielle offers lots of upfront black and blue fruits, licorice and white pepper in its fresh, medium to full-bodied, elegant personality
50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah. Organic. “Brought up in concrete and stainless steel. This charming, forward, hedonistic effort excels on all accounts and has lots of cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with green herbs, lavender and flower nuances. It has light tannin, tons of character and will drink nicely right out of the gate.” Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate #228, 92 Points
60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan. Organic. The Côtes du Rhône Cuvee les Trois Sœurs is a year in, year out value that’s a no-brainer. Notes of black raspberries, cassis and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, charming, elegant and polished red that has no hard edges and a supple finish. It’s perfect for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.
100% Viognier. Organic. The 100% varietal 2016 Côtes du Rhône Viognier is another solid white that offers lots of white peach, flowers and tangerine in its medium-bodied, polished and elegant style. Aged all in stainless steel, drink it over the coming year or two.
