|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Fantastic value southern Rhone grenache dominated blend of syrah, mourvédre cinsault, carignan and marselan. Full bodied with big, bold tannins just starting to soften. Fleshy and generous with abundant aromas and flavours of ripe black berries. Beautifully balanced with excellent acidity and a subtle touch of minerality. Closes in a lingering smoke-hued finish. Fantastic companion to a charcuterie board, enjoyed by the fireplace. Tasted Dec 2016. Tania Thomas – www.taniathomas.com.

Delicious, rich and fruity! Dark fruit, herbs and earthiness abound. Concentrated fruit flavours and mellow tannins. Enjoy with food or on its own- Excellent value wine.
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An easy drinking Côte-du-Rhone. Pleasant aromas of ripe berries and herbs followed by flavours of tart cherry, oak, and spice make this a great wine to pair with pizza and burgers.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine from Southern Rhone bursts with aromas of ripe, black cherry, chocolate and plum with secondary aromas of black pepper and leather. Full-bodied with cherry, chocolate and leather on the palate. Grippy tannins. This wine would pair well with braised beef dishes. Tasted April 3, 2016.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
100% yum for the money! Predominantly Grenache, but a mix of five other traditional Côtes du Rhône grapes: Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Vaccarèse. All of the grapes are hand-picked, hence the 100% name.
Dark plums, baking spices, and oak follow through with a lingering peppery finish. Present tannins and balanced acidity make this a great pairing with a variety of dishes from lamb burgers to cheese and charcuterie boards.
Tasted April 2016.

A smooth, extra-dry, balanced Cotes Du Rhone red blend made by esteemed winemaker Xavier Vignon. Mellow and versatile, with soft tannins.

|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Bursting with floral aromas of fresh raspberries and ripe blue and black berries. Juicy field berry entry, bitter chocolate middle, and closes with a short burst of dry mellow tannins. Great value! Score 89. (Reviewed Dec. 4, 2016)
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Soft and friendly, this value priced Cotes du Rhone is packed full of red berry fruit, herbs, and spice. At this price ($17 CDN), it's perfectly suited for Tuesday and Saturday evenings alike. Tasted February 2016. 88+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Alex: A solid cotes-du rhone, a little oaky but balanced and big in flavor. Dark berries, vanilla and grilled herbs mark the nose and palate, with good richness and agently tannic balanced finish. More extracted and oaky than your average cotes-du-rhone but well made and priced. 88 pts
