"A blend of Grenache with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up mostly in concrete tank, the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône is a winner that should be snatched up by readers as it's a beautiful wine that over-delivers. Kirsch, blackberries, garrigue, and flowers incense notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, layered, pure and polished Côtes Du Rhône that displays ripe tannins, beautiful density, and a great finish."

"A deep and rich feel here with a swathe of ripe forest berries and some herbal nuances, too. The palate has fine-grained texture and a plush, even build. Drink now."
"The Côtes-du-Rhône from Clos Saint Antonin comes from the younger vines on the property – between 30-50 years old! This cuvée is always dominated by Grenache (~80%) with Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the remainder of the blend. Originally this cuvée was aged in concrete and foudre but starting in 2018 Isabelle has decided that to achieve as naked an expression of Grenache as possible it is fermented and aged without SO2 it in neutral 600L French oak demi-muids." - Importer
