About

90-92

Not yet bottled, the 2016 Cotes du Rhoe 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.

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 cuvee.

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