Franc fruité rouge, bouche souple et déjà légèrement épicée, à boire.

Score : (90-92)

Not yet bottled, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône is more full-bodied and generous, with a layered, ripe, sexy style. Its has similar aromatics to the 2015 yet cuts a wider path across the palate.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (89 - 91)

At the moment, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone is more complex than the impressive 2015, offering up hints of plum, cassis and mulberry as well as savory notes of leather and spice. It looks like back-to-back winning vintages for this workhorse cuvée.

Direct, with juicy bramble, blackberry and black licorice notes mixed together. Light cedar hints thread the finish. Drink now. 100,000 cases imported. — JM
