"Botted just two weeks ago, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Les Sables d'Arene is another incredible winner from this estate, which seems incapable of putting a foot wrong. Ripe red and black fruits, spice, and tons of garrigue dominate this ripe, sexy, pleasure-bent effort that's ideal for drinking anytime over the coming 4-5 years. It's certainly worth a case purchase."
"Coming entirely from Grenache planted around 1950 in a sandy part of Lirac, the Côtes-du-Rhône Les Sables d’Arene would be a standout Lirac if it wasn’t for the fact that mono-varietal wines are not permitted according to current AOC rules.
