Clos-St-Antonin-Cotes-du-Rhone-Rouge-2016

Clos St. Antonin, Cotes du Rhone Rouge, 2016

“While there were no prices listed on these wines (I’m not sure who brings them into the United States), the 2016 Côtes du Rhône should be sought out by savvy buyers. Ripe, rounded, and incredibly sexy, with lots of kirsch and blackberry fruits, garrigue, and mineral notes, it has impeccable balance as well as purity of fruit. It’s a knockout Côtes du Rhône to drink over the coming 3-4 years.” – Jeb Dunnuck (91 points)

“Wild and brambly with a wealth of mixed berries and dark chocolate. The palate has chalky tannins that are compressed and set like plaster. Chocolate and dark berries to finish. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling (91 points)

“The final blend of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, tasted prior to bottling, is 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Ripe, mouthwatering and fresh, this medium to full-bodied wine delivers juicy plum and black cherry fruit underscored by softly dusty tannins. It should drink well for up to 5 years.” – Wine Advocate (89-91 points)
