About

93

No destemming. This is vinified in a tronconic wooden tank, then spends 12 months in foudre. Assemblage is followed by six months resting in a concrete vat before bottling. Beautiful lifted violet aromas. Very silky on your tongue with a good sense of vibrancy. A little wild in fruit character, but a really drinkable and lively wine, with a long finish.

93 Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Visan Terre Pourpre was vinified in oak and bottled in April 2018 after spending a year in foudres and demi-muids and another six months in tank. It's dominated by crisp black cherry fruit—crunchy, fresh and acid-driven yet ripe at the same time. Serve it blind to your friends who think they don't like Grenache and watch the light bulb come on.
