Domaine Grand Nicolet Côtes du Rhône 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Rhone Report: A smoking Côtes du Rhône, the 2010 Domaine Grand Nicolet (70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Carignan, and 5% Mourvedre) is aged all in concrete tank and is a gorgeous example of Provencal viticulture. It delivers loads of black cherries, mineral, smoked earth, and dark chocolate-like qualities (very Rasteau-like actually) that flow to a full-bodied, rich, powerful 2010 that has layers of fruit, yet also a fair kick of tannin as well. Buy this beauty by the case, give it a year or two, and drink bottles over the following 4-6 years. (Sep 2012)
