SKU #1329278 92 points Decanter

 Sweet, salty, floral airs. Buzzy, spiced palate based on vibrant Grenache. Character, energy and length in the glass. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029.(JLL)  (2/2017)

91 points James Suckling

 Blue fruits and flowers on the nose. The freshness and open-knit structure make a compelling combination of generously fleshy and flavorsome style. Plums and blackberries throughout. Drink now.  (8/2017)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Coming all from clay and pebbly soils located to the north of Châteauneuf du Pape, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Terre d'Argile is a supple, elegant example of this cuvée. Black cherries, garrigue, dried herbs, and licorice give way to a medium-bodied, layered, silky red that's loaded with charm.  (10/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Terre d'Argile comes from a parcel of vines near Beaucastel's Coudoulet. A blend of one-fourth each Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan, it's a ripe, supple, medium to full-bodied wine full of cherries and chocolate, with hints of black tea on the finish.(JC)  (10/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Ripe, but restrained in style, with pretty, silky tannins carrying crushed cherry and warm plum fruit flavors. Light bergamot and singed alder hints thread the elegant finish. Drink now through 2019.  (11/2017)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
