"The 2011 Cuvée Traditionelle from Domaine du Vissoux is another lovely and utterly classic example of the vintage- tightly-knit and rock solid at the core and only waiting for a bit of bottle age to help it burst out of its youthful confines and delight. The very deep, pure and nascently complex nose offers up scents of cherries, cranberries, woodsmoke, a beautiful base of soil, blood orange and a topnote of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, vibrant and intensely flavored, with lovely mineral drive, a fine core, tangy acids and a long, youthful and impressively driven finish. Give this a year to really blossom- though it is already very tasty with a bit of aeration! 2012-2025."
