This wine from Vieille Julienne and that is this wine is definitely not your average Cotes du Rhone. It is strikingly fresh with loads of red fruit and savory characters. The freshness of the wine is sharpened with a piercing aroma of white pepper, earth, clove and anise. Red and lavender flower fully emerge only shortly after opening. It is a mistake to drink quickly, so take your time on this one.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Côtes du Rhône Lieu Dit Clavin is gorgeous, and gives a touch of the estate's style for less buck than the Châteauneufs. Blackberry, graphite, licorice and violets all show here. It's medium+-bodied, fleshy and ripe, with good underlying structure. It will have over a decade of longevity.

Wine SpectatorA rounded and fleshy style, with a hefty dose of warm ganache over lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors. Lively licorice edge through the finish. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now. 100 cases imported.
