- Winery Notes

91-93 pts Wine Advocate

The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Villages Visan les Antonins is 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, an unusually high proportion of Grenache for this relatively high, cool appellation in the Southern Rhône. Yet it works, with tarry, herbal notions of dark fruit on the nose and amazingly lush black cherries on the full-bodied palate. It's creamy, supple and ends long, with an appealing touch of licorice. Yum!

91 pts James Suckling

Firm acids and upright, feathery tannins lend an elegant frame to this fresh, structured red. It's a perfumed, pretty wine boasting crisp blackberry and violet perfume as well as a brisk mineral backbone. Ripe but not at all jammy, it's a nuanced sip to enjoy now through 2026

Easy Drinking & Food Loving!

The 2017 vintage in the Rhône Valley follows in the footsteps of the highly regarded 2015 vintage. If you enjoy an untamed red, both earthy and spicy with explosive black fruits then look no further. This wine is so packed with ripe strawberry, boysenberry and tobacco flavors it could easily pass for a more expensive Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Savvy shoppers will love this wine for its character that won’t break the bank. And if dinner tonight includes cheese, charcuterie and olives, you’ve found a match made in heaven.
