"Not yet bottled, the 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Vaison-La-Romaine Romanaise is all Grenache brought up in used barrels. It has a cooler climate vibe in its bright strawberry, black raspberry, candied violets, and white pepper aromatics, and this carries over to the palate, where the wine is well-structured, medium-bodied, and nicely focused."
90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The all-Grenache 2020 Cotes du Rhone Villages Vaison la Romaine Romanaise features black cherries and vanilla on the nose. The cedary elements from aging in demi-muids help to rein in the super-ripe Grenache flavors, providing structure and length to this otherwise big, corpulent wine. Mouthfilling and silky in texture, the flavors linger easily on the finish."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Grenache. This wine comes from Domaine Fond Croze estate vineyard in Saint-Roman-De-Malegarde. Its exposure on the North side of the hill offers a magnificent freshness. Tasting Notes: 2020 Cotes du Rhone Villages La Romanaise has a very intense color, ruby red with purplish reflections. On the nose, aromas of intense fruit and spices. In the mouth, a remarkable power. Elegant with a spicy aromatic finish.
