An outstanding, extraordinary wine! The Grenache is rich, concentrated and very aromatic, thanks to production being rigorously controlled. The secret of this success is anything but a secret — it's clear: old vines!
Blend: 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre
"The 2011 Cotes du Rhone Guy Louis, which spends two years in old oak casks, is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, and always seems to possess an extra dimension. Dark fruit, damp earth, pepper, roasted herb and meaty notes are found in this mouth-filling, medium to full-bodied Cotes du Rhone.
Range: 88-90 Points"
