With a very high 40% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre to go with 45% old-vine Grenache, this is much bigger and richer - with darker, more powerful fruit – than is typical even of most top Liracs.

So Chateauneuf quality, an almost Northern Rhone style and a Cotes-du-Rhone price. What’s not to love?

A Wine Advocate 92 – even better than the superb 2016:

A single-domaine bottling from the local cave cooperative, it offers hints of mint and garrigue on the nose, followed by notes of black olives and black cherries. It's full-bodied, rich and promising, with dark chocolate and salted licorice on the long finish.

They go on to say:

This large, well-run cave cooperative boasts 140 members. It's an important player in the region, producing almost half the output of the entire Tavel appellation. It sells 70% of its volume as bottled wine and has an impressive roster of clients to whom it sells in bulk. There is a sometimes dizzying array of bottlings, but the overall level of quality is among the best in the entire Rhône Valley.

Southern Rhone, or even French, red wine values don’t get much better than this.
