The texture was pretty nice, and the a bit spicy plumish taste pretty much what you would expect from a cdr. A bit of herbs, pretty soft (but not too much) on the tannins and acidity. Good, fullbodied, drinkable, with a fine earthliness. Nothing mindblowing, but a good cdr for lamb (with garlic).

    For over 10 years, 4th generation winemaker Daniel Boulle has creating some of the richest, most well regarded wines from the region; his rosé continues this trend. A blend of Carignan, Grenache and Mourvèdre this wine is concentrated on the palate with ripe berries and notes of fresh herbs.

    Die Grenache Trauben kommen aus einer Parzelle die 1921 gepflanzt wurden. Der Wein zeigt Noten nach Schokolade, Erdbeeren und schwarzen Kirschen. Der Körper ist sehr gut strukturiert und bringt feine Tannine mit.

    Helles Rubinrot mit violetten Reflexen. Das Bukett präsentiert sich vielschichtig; Pflaumen, schwarze Feigen, Brombeeren und verschiedene Kräuter wie Oregano, Thymian und Lorbeeren. Im Gaumen sehr cremig und geschmeidig.

    Beeriges und fruchtiges Bukett mit würzigen und kräuterigen Noten. Kräftiger Körper mit saftiger Struktur und komplexer Aromatik.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    93 points Rhone Report: Even richer, with additional depth and richness, the 2010 Cuvée 3 Cépages is a blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, that gets harvested all at the same time in October when the Mourvedre finally gets ripe. This results in ultra ripe Grenache and Syrah, and while it is no lightweight, it stays beautifully fresh and light on the palate. Deep, rich, and layered, with copious blackberry, toasted spice, dusty minerality, and ground pepper, this full-bodied Côtes du Rhône is uncommonly concentrated and possesses a brilliant textured, notable purity, and grippy tannin that gives the wine plenty of edge and cut on the blockbuster, heady finish. It is already reasonably approachable (I followed this bottle for three days), yet will be even better in another year, and drink well through 2017. (Sep 2012)
