Although best known for his Northern Rhône wines, 2010 was Stéphane’s first vintage of this stylish Côtes du Rhône from vineyards in the Rhône’s southern stretches. As the name of the wine suggests, the time had come for the domaine to take their adventure to the south. This wine comes from two parcels: one in Plan de Dieu, which gives bigger, richer styles; complementing this, freshness and structure is contributed by Syrah grapes grown at higher altitude in the Visan commune. This 2018 is 60% Grenache and 39% Syrah, with a seasoning of Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Bright, mid ruby colour, aromas are attractive and perfumed, recalling fresh raspberries, dried rose petals and sweetly spiced strawberries. This is a full-bodied, openly charming wine, with a rounded, lively palate, citrusy freshness and a silky-smooth texture. A buoyant, satisfying wine for youthful drinking (2020- 2023).
