Winemaker's Notes

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."

Critical Acclaim

"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."
