Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Passion Mas de Sainte Croix

Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Passion 2017 Mas de Sainte Croix


"The Valreas Passion d’une Terre looks to be outstanding" Robert Parker - From the Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas appellation, "Passion d'une Terre" is brillant, showing an astonishing complexity for this kind of price. Intense nose of red fruit and sweet spices, powerful and round palate with a long finish: a superb, yet affordable bottle - give it a try, and do not hesitate to keep a few in your cellar, it will age very well in the medium term.

Decanter World Wine Awards

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

92/100 "A tank aged blend of equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, the Valreas Passion d’Une Terre looks to be outstanding, with lots of creamy fruits, licorice and spice, medium to full-bodied richness and a ripe, textured, polished profile. It should drink nicely right out of the gate." (previous vintage)

Wine Spectator

90/100 "Lively, with a juicy mix of blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit spiked with anise notes and framed by a roasted apple wood accent. Solidly built. Drink now through 2020." (previous vintage)

Guide Hachette des Vins

2* "Some Grenache (75%) and Mourvèdre for this authentic Valréas. Rather discreet, the nose releases scents of red fruits, with notes of leather. These aromas are again present in the mouth, which is round, ample, warm and generous, built on tannins still tight. The persistant finish of liquorice notes leaves the memory of a wine of character. Potential." (previous vintage)
