Domaine la Colliere is a small family estate founded by Georges
Perrot. He began bottling his own wine in 2002, renting some
cellar space from Andre Romero of Domaine Soumade fame. Prior
to 2002, all the juice went to one of the big negociants. Reknown
Rhone enologist, Philippe Cambie, consults on the project, which
is already receiving rave reviews from the press.
Robert Parker says, "This unheralded estate is making fabulous
wines from their 62 acres of vines spread throughout Rasteau and
the surrounding Cotes du Rhone appellation. Proprietor Georges
Perrot utilizes the services of the enormously talented Philippe
Cambie, and, as one might expect, these are full-flavored,
wonderfully pure, complex wines that respect their appellation."
"A sleeper of the vintage, the 2010 Cotes du Rhone, which includes Grenache and Syrah in the blend, possesses surprisingly full body as well as concentrated, sweet blackberry and kirsch notes intermixed with hints of spring flowers, pepper and earth. Fruity, hedonistic, complex and opulent, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years. Rated 88-90."
