A MUCH LOVED ADVINTAGE MEGADEAL
4.5 STARS | Sam Kim Wine Orbit
TROPHY FOR RHONE PRODUCER of the YEAR | NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL WINE SHOW.
Les Dauphins has developed a huge following with the Advintage Faithful and the 2017 continues the house style with a gloriously drinkable, Grenache dominant Côtes du Rhône. This is the perfect French café style red - a classic Côtes du Rhône that bursts with ripe summer fruits and rich, spicy, peppery flavours. Great with all red meats or ideal if you simply like an affordable glass of wine with plenty of character.
Sam Kim writes "Youthfully charming, the inviting bouquet shows Black Doris plum, dark cherry, violet, almond and olive characters, leading to a succulent palate that is wonderfully weighted and smooth. It is fruit expressive and supple with a lengthy silky finish."
The 2017 is a bland of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Mouvèdre
