Description

"An immediately arresting wine here form the southern Rhône, deeply coloured, inky, with a massive nose-full of fresh but superripe black berry/cassis fruit, heavy on the syrah I'd guess (actually: 60% Grenache - 20% Syrah - 10% Carignan - 10% Cinsault) , also with plenty of floral-violet notes, very engaging all in all. The palate is a gentle giant, broad-scaled but not overly boozy or tannic, bursting with that dark fruit. Hugely satisfying, contemporary, but also regionally authentic. Drinkable now, but I'd suggest another 1-3 years in the cellar for the maximum complexity." 91 points

"Very solid, with steeped plum and boysenberry fruit lined with roasted alder and tobacco notes. An iron element lurks on the finish, showing good flesh for the vintage."

"A knockout Cotes du Rhone that does everything right, Bertrand’s 2011 Cotes du Rhone is comprised of 70% Grenache and equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre and Carignan. Aged 14 months in concrete tank, it offers up a terrific bouquet of ripe red and blackcurrants, saddle leather, spice-box and licorice to go with a full-bodied, voluptuous and textured feel on the palate. Buy this beauty by the case and enjoy it over the coming 2-4 years. Drink now-2017."
