Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette co-fermented. Aromas and flavors of forest, gingerbread, bacon, garrigue, lavander.
91 Points International Wine Cellar - Deep ruby. Pungent, assertively perfumed aromas of cherry, cassis, potpourri and white pepper. Juicy, penetrating and refreshingly bitter, offering an array of dark fruit and spice qualities and an exotic floral pastille nuance. Finishes long and spicy, with impressive clarity and cut.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Roasted and perfumy, with mesquite and espresso notes weaving through the crushed plum and red currant fruit. Tobacco and ganache hints flitter in on the finish, adding length and definition.
90 Points The Wine Advocate - The inky/purple-colored 2010 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albion represents fabulous value. Offering up lovely notes of marmalade, honeysuckle, white peaches, cassis and black cherries, this is a full-bodied, luscious, supple-textured 2010.
