Vintages 2011


Wine Advocate #210 - Dec 2013

Score : 88

The value-priced 2011 Cotes du Rhone (49% Syrah, 46% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre aged 24 months in foudre) over-delivers and exhibits textbook black cherry, smoked earth, olive, underbrush and licorice, as well as a clean, balanced, medium to full-bodied profile on the palate. Rock solid in the vintage and surpassing any number of more expensive releases, it should be consumed over the coming 4-5 years. Jeb Dunnuck.



Score : 14,5 / 20

Une vaste gourmandise...aussi large que le Rhône en saveurs...latérales (Jus de cassis, cerise, raisin noir, etc), aussi dense et mouvant que le cours de ce même fleuve. RAS et l'on en redemande...roboratif!



Score : 16/20

Magnifiquement rond et gourmand, porté par sa majorité de syrah, à ne pas boire trop chambré, long, égalant de nombreux crus du Sud grâce à la complémentarité des sources et il y en a des millions de bouteilles !
