Pretty deep color. The nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of black currant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness. Serve at 18°C (64°F) with beef, lamb, or poultry.

Wine AdvocateAbnormally concentrated for this cuvée, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Reserve is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah (sourced from Vinsobres). Tasted prior to bottling, it offers intense cherry fruit, supple tannins and crisp acids. At the price this wine normally sells for, it should be a steal.

Jeb DunnuckMoving to the 2017s, this sunny, almost California-like vintage was handled brilliantly at this estate, which is helped by its cooler, northerly location and plethora of Mourvèdre, which loves the heat. Starting with the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Reserve, it has a classic, fruit-forward style as well as plenty of blackberry and cherry fruits intermixed with notes of pepper and leafy herbs. It's a dense, rounded, rock-solid Côtes Du Rhône to drink over the coming 3-5 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis ripe, fleshy wine is chock full of luscious mulberry and cassis flavors. It's potent and full bodied but a brisk, mineral sheen on the midpalate lends freshness. The finish is moderately long, framed by fine, soft tannins. Drink now-2023.

Wine SpectatorA fresh, light-bodied style, with a friendly core of cherry paste flavors, framed by a subtle singed sandalwood note. Drink now.
