86/100 "The Côtes du Rhône Vin Gourmand Blanc (Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne) is a medium-bodied, supple, tangy effort that gives up pretty apricot flowers and peach on the nose. Drink it over the coming year." (previous vintage)

  
Wine-Spectator.jpg

88/100 "A high-pitched style, with verbena and honeysuckle notes leading the way for crisp yellow apple, melon rind and white peach flavors. Shows a pleasant mineral vibrancy on the finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)

Wine-Enthusiast.jpg

87/100  "Pear, melon and anise aromas lead the way, followed on the palate by a broad, soft mouthfeel and flavors that add peppery spice on the long finish." (previous vintage)

In Rhône Valley, the Hermitage appellation is a must. It covers only 137 hectares on a granitic hill where you wonder how vines can grow. 2010, one of the greatest vintages in the area, delivered a rich red wine full of black cherry flavours. A big, rich and complex wine with a hint of liquorice and very long finish. Rhône lovers will love it at first sip.

Their Côtes du Rhône Vin Gourmand is a top notch red, especially in such a wide appellation producing good, average but also low standard wines!

Probably the most prestigious appellation for reds from Rhône Valley, Côte Rôtie is one of Your Sommelier's favourite French wines. This one is exceptionally complex, with a powerful nose of black berries and sweet spices. A very silky wine on the palate, perfectly balanced with a long, long finish.

The Deluxe version of the Viognier grape, Condrieu is a very small appellation stuck within Côte Rôtie and is very sought after in the whole world. An exuberant nose of ripe yellow fruit, passion fruit and a lot of white flowers. Very original and special white for a great experience.
