90 points Decanter
"Deep, rich and forest berries."
"Violet, bramble and fresh thyme accentuate bright blackberry and plum in this velvety, rich red. While its juicy, floral style is approachable, the wine is surprisingly bold in structure, framed by dense, penetrating tannins and brisk acidity."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Cotes du Rhone offers a rock-solid perfume of darker fruits, peppery herbs, violets and earth, as well as medium-bodied richness, a firm, edgy feel and a good finish. It opens up nicely with air, has ripe tannin and should drink beautifully for 4-5 years. I suspect it will represent a terrific value as well."
"Grenache with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Dark mid crimson with a pale rim. Herbs and balsam on the nose – savoury rather than sweet. And then there is masses of sweetness on the palate but a finish that is fresh and dry. Really great balance and nice neat finish. This is better than many commercial Châteauneufs. VGV (very good value). 16.5/20 points."
