Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby in colour with aromas of blackberry, plum, black pepper and a hint of vanilla. It is full bodied with well balanced acidity and tannins with flavours of raspberry, plum and spice. This will pair well with red meats, lamb and pork chops. A great deal for the price, get it while you can. Tasted on July 17, 2020.
Domaine La Décelle 2017 is a smoky and elegant red wine blend of 50% Grenache and Syrah. Love the ripe strawberry, raspberry and smoky aromas on the nose, bright red berry, pink florals, cracked pepper and smoky flavours, long and silky smooth on the palate. Nicely done! Pair with lamb shoulder roast. - Community Wine Reviews
