Cairanne Vielles Vignes red 2019 got 91 by the Wine Enthusiast's magazine : Unoaked and resplendent in fruit, this full-bodied, vibrant red highlights pristine blackberry and raspberry flavors cut by firm strikes of granite and a dazzling acidic backbone. A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Carignan, it's thirst-quenching when young but should maintain its vitality through 2024.
Côtes du Rhône red 2019 got 90 by the Wine Enthusiast's magazine : This blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 20% Mourvèdre offers decadent, juicy black-plum and blueberry flavors accented by whispers of lilac, crushed earth and charred cinnamon. While moderately full bodied and voluminous on the palate, it's a freshly balanced, delicately tannic red that should drink well through 2024 at least.
Côtes du Rhône white 2019 got 90 by the Wine Enthusiast's magazine : Stony, mineral tones on the nose open into charming white peach and honey on the palate of this plush yet freshly balanced dry white. A blend of equal parts Roussanne, Viognier, Clairette and Bourboulenc, it's ripe and fleshy but invigoratingly mineral on the midpalate, too. Best now–2024.
Cairanne Vieilles Vignes 2019 got 91 by the Wine Advocate's magazine
For only $5 more than the basic Cotes du Rhone, the 2019 Cairanne Vieilles Vignes is a wine to seek out. This medium to full-bodied effort revealssexynotes of flowering garrigue on the nose, paired with mixed raspberry and blackberry fruit. The tannins are fine-grained, yielding an almost creamy texture on the midpalate, then add an elegant, silky edge to the long finish.Lovely stuff that should drink well for 5-6 years.
Côtes du Rhône white 2019 got 90 by the Wine Advocate's magazine :
Mainly equal parts Bourboulenc and Clairette, with just a splash of Grenache Blanc, the 2019 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a plump, harmonious offering with hints of white peaches, melon and citrus. Medium to full-bodied, it's silkyand fine, with a lasting, elegant finish. EU certified organic.

The medium-bodied 2019 Cotes du Rhone features silky tannins, hints of peppered strawberries and raspberries and a gentle, elegant finish . Not overly powerful or concentrated, it should continue drinking well for thenext couple of years.
Côtes du Rhône Muses : Sa robe est framboise, les fruits rouges se retrouvent et explosent en bouche ; un magnifique jus à cueillir dans sa jeunesse qui donne de l’inspiration. L’anti Côtes du- Rhône rustique et lourd.

Vieilles Vignes 2016 : 92 by "The Wine Enthusiast" : There's aromatic richness to this Grenache-dominant blend, suggesting notes of smoked nut, earth and violet alongside intensely ripe black fruit. Black-plum and cherry flavors are silky yet fresh, framed by finely textured but persistent tannins. It's lovely already but should improve through 2026.
