    65% grenache noir, 20% syrah, 10% carignan, 5% mourvèdre/cinsault. A deep vibrant red, this presents immediate aromas of wild fruit, blackberry and spice. Grown on ancient vineyards around the village of Chusclan (north-west of Châteauneuf-du-Pape), the wine is smooth and structured with impressive balance.

    On the 2012 vintage: “It pours a striking and vivid deep purple colour, with a beautiful lift to the nose, a real white pepper fragrance, touched with herbs and flowers, and sappy cherry fruit. On the palate it has delightful juiciness and a creamy red fruit flavour, the ripeness and fruit sweetness is apparent, and the finish quite gentle, with spice and pepper, smooth tannins and a freshness to the acidity. Really delicious stuff.” — Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com (June 2014)

    R20 2010 Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier +

    Syrah. Widely regarded as an elite producer of Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier holds almost four acres in the renowned Beaume vineyard on the Hermitage hill itself.

    “The prodigious 2010 Hermitage reveals classic flowery notes (violets) intermixed with crème de cassis, pen ink, scorched earth and a touch of subtle wood spice in the background. This full-bodied, tannic, muscular blockbuster Hermitage should prove to be a classic, and age effortlessly for 25 or more years. Only patient connoisseurs are advised to take a look at this wine which demands 4-5 years of cellaring. Domaine du Colombier is one of the most underrated estates in the Northern Rhône.” 96 points
