Moving to the 2017s, this sunny, almost California-like vintage was handled brilliantly at this estate, which is helped by its cooler, northerly location and plethora of Mourvèdre, which loves the heat. Starting with the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Reserve, it has a classic, fruit-forward style as well as plenty of blackberry and cherry fruits intermixed with notes of pepper and leafy herbs. It’s a dense, rounded, rock-solid Côtes Du Rhône to drink over the coming 3-5 years.

This ripe, fleshy wine is chock full of luscious mulberry and cassis flavors. It's potent and full bodied but a brisk, mineral sheen on the midpalate lends freshness. The finish is moderately long, framed by fine, soft tannins. Drink now–2023.
