The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is a smoking good Côtes du Rhône and offers full-bodied aromas and flavors of blackberries, black raspberries, cassis, lavender, and flowers. It's rich and concentrated, yet also elegant, weightless, and layered, with notable complexity.

A bit cedary and dry, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes is showing a bit too much wood at the moment, but I expect this full-bodied, blackberry-laced beauty to come around by 2020.
