Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Tannins in this wine can be a palate buster - Caution! All kidding aside this is red wine goes into the heavy weight category. Deep inky ruby colour in the glass is a foreshadowing of the intense nose of black fruit, charred oak, baking spices and tobacco. There's a lift of herbes de Provence. Bright acidity tries to calm the tannins. I'd venture trying this wine in 5-10 years. This wine scored 91 points from Robert Parker. Decant 2 hours or more in you are enjoying today. Pair with salt, fat, protein. Salted Brazilian style BBQ meats.
Tasted: June 2015
Made by Xavier et Odile Thieblin, this robust Provence red wine has a nice nose but is a little short on the finish. The 2011 vintage of the Coteaux d'Aix Provence is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with just a dash of Grenache and Syrah grapes. The wine was matured in concrete tanks, with just a small fraction in oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
