Reviews and Ratings

Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour. Aromas of dark berries, herbs, alcohol, and cedar. Medium-full bodied, dry, with young tannins. A savoury red wine ready to be paired with game dishes or grilled red meats, or to be set aside for another 18-24 months to help integrate the abundant acidity. Score 88.
(S.Segard, reviewed Nov. 17, 2017)
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

An approachable Cotes du Rhône, medium bodied, medium fruit, medium acidity. Pairs well with charcuterie. Tasted 2015 vintage in April 2019. 87 points
Cave de Rasteau Grande Réserve Visan (2015) is a great value Côtes Du Rhône under $20. The wines of Visan, a Côtes du Rhône-Villages appellation since 1966, are known for the elegant but spicy nature. This vintage shows ripe cherry and dark berry fruit on the palate with a dried tobacco leave and spicy finish. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
