Balanced Cote du Rhone, very good value for money, not too complex - a wine for every day, but not a lightweight. Nice fruit without being too flat or boring.more reviews

"This punches well above its weight and is worth a try by anyone looking for a delicious everyday red." Robert Parker
This Côtes du Rhône is made from vines that are between 50 and 70 years old. The 28-day maceration and 18 months ageing in cement vats give the grapes a magnificent aromatic complexity. The nose and palate are jammy, the palate is full of flavour with a smooth tannic structure. Decant it and you will enjoy its full splendour.

Smooth wine for a very reasonable price. Nevertheless, it did not have the Rhône Valley personality i hoped to find. Happy to have ordered a couple of bottles of this wine, though.

Truly rich in fruits. Blindly would guess New World. Med.intense aromas: blackberry, sweet raspberry, Mediterranean herbs & baking spices, waxy boots. Med.bodied, fruity & vivid sip. Med.intense acidity, chewy tannins. Sweet compliments though dry & alco's already integrated. Nice & gastronomic!

Beautiful red colour, a little deeper than that of a Burgundy. Complex nose. On the palate, there's no pepper flavour like some CDRs, which is probably due to the absence of Syrah. Well-crafted and pleasant to drink.

A fairly classic Syrah nose, but one that needs a little aeration before tasting to allow the aromas to reveal themselves more fully. On the palate, it's beautifully fresh, but not excessively so, with just the right amount of pepper.
