Another find of our MD on his escapades, this is proper old-school Rasteau power. We were utterly seduced by this wine when we first tried it even though it was a balmy June afternoon! 11 months in demi-muids have given this wine elegance, power and some early approachability already! This has at least another 10 years in it and will keep getting better. All of the wines made by Les Grand Bois are deeply coloured, ripe, robust and while one can think of many flavors to describe them, the word ‘delicious’ pretty much says it all.
“Consistently one of my favourite estates in the Southern Rhône, Les Grands Bois produces Côtes-du-Rhône that consistently over-perform their appellation and modest prices.” – Robert Parker
