“One of the leading southern Rhone estates for value…” Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
An equal parts blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Opaque dark purple black colour with a dark purple hue. Pronounced black raspberry and liquorice top notes are followed by some more subtle black cherry characters, spicy incense and a touch of earth. Full bodied the palate possesses excellent richness with succulent flavours of black raspberries and black cherries to the fore followed by some liquorice, earthy meatiness and spice. The rich ripe core of fruit is offset by a slightly dry, chewy mouthfeel and solid but fine grained tannins. Medium to long aftertaste of black raspberries, liquorice, earthy meatiness and spice.
Cellar 4-5 years.
A blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Village Cuvee 3 Cepages also shows the purity and suppleness of the vintage, with ample floral, berry, mint and incense-like qualities flowing to a medium to full-bodied, textured and beautifully balanced feel on the palate. Coming from tiny, tiny yields (we’re talking on the order of 10 hectoliters per hectare), it is a stunning success in the vintage and should evolve gracefully for 7-8 years. Drink 2013-2021.
