Rating : Robert Parker 91/100
« Even better than the straight Côtes du Rhône, the 2012 Côtes du Rhône 100% is almost a kitchen-sink blend, with 40% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault, Carignan and Marselan. Aged 12 months in 80% concrete tank and 20% in barrel, it dishes out plenty of black raspberry, raspberry, crushed flowers and ample minerality on the nose. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that has beautiful concentration, a layered, balanced feel and ample length. It’s another rocking Southern Rhône from this team. » (Wine Advocate 2014 - Robert Parker)

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Encore meilleur que le Côtes-du-Rhône classique, le 100% 2012 est presque un assemblage à l'instinct, avec un peu de Grenache, un peu de Syrah, un peu de Mourvèdre et le reste de Carignan, Cinsault... Elevé pendant 12 mois en cuve béton et en barrique, il explose de framboises noires, de framboises, de fleurs écrasées et d'une minéralité ample au nez. Suivie par une bouche charpentée, la concentration est belle et la longueur structurée, équilibrée et ample. C'est encore un succès pour cette équipe.

Vin à carafer pour apprécier à sa juste valeur le fruité mis en avant dans cette bouteille.

Ne vaut pas la note Parker ! Bien pour tous les jours mais voilà quoi ! Pas de quoi sortir les superlatifs Voilà, c'était l'avis après la 1ère bouteille débouchée. Mais la suite a été bien meilleure. À retenter. Pour totalement infirmer le 1er avis

Un bon petit vin de pic-nique. Manque un peu de densité pour être apprécié dans d'autres circonstances.

Assemblage recherché;ne convainc pas pleinement
Rating and review of M. ANTOINE M. Published on 21/02/2016
Un peu sur le réserve au vu de certains avis très durs, j'ai été agréablement surpris par un vin très fruité au nez et rond et puissant en bouche, sans fausse note. Les fruits (framboise et fruits noirs) se mélangent avec une pointe épicée bien mis en valeur par la puissance. Si la finale avait été plus persistante, j'aurais mis 5 étoiles. pour ce prix je l'ai trouvé très bien.

Un très bon cote du Rhone. Un assemblage judicieux qui donne un vin léger et explosif en bouche. Très bon rapport qualité/prix.

Straddling the Rhône river, stretching from Vienne to Valence and on down to Avignon, the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation draws its personality from its extremely diverse soils, climates, and grape varieties. Originally established in 1937, the appellation was expanded in 2004 and now extends into 171 villages. There are five basic soil types here that can be divided into two groups. ...
