Klassisk rhone hint af røde bær, kirsebær, krydderier, hvid peber, potpourri og lakrids. Smagen er generøs med friskhed med strejf af røde bær, kirsebær, krydderier, hvid peber. Vinen har en god balance mellem frugt og syrer – med klare, men indpakkede tanniner. Lang eftersmag med lag på lag af mørk frugt.

WineAdvocate
93p

The 2017 Bésoleil is a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Couniose and Syrah that opens with elegant and precise aromas of bright rubied fruit. Moving deeper on the nose, there are subtle aromas of red spice with a soft rusticity that adds to the complexity. Medium to full-bodied, the palate shows soft red fruit and spices upfront, while strengthening tannins build toward the back, channeling Old World essence with New World ripeness. The long, spicy finish continues to bring pleasure moments after the wine has left the palate. If this isn't in your cellar, with only 450 cases made, you better hurry to hunt down a bottle for yourself.

93p

Attractive, fragrant red fruit with a more serious side that offers a deeper thread of blue fruit, spice and pepper. The palate has a succulent edge and good depth. Very supple and holding the flavors long. A blend of 49% grenache, 34% mourvedre, 11% counoise and 6% syrah. Drink or hold.

Vinous
93p

Bright medium red. The nose offers a sexy combination of red berries, smoke, musky olive and licorice. Wonderfully plush and aromatic in the mouth, but with serious lift and definition to the velvety flavors of raspberry, Rainier cherry, licorice and spices. A seriously urgent, zesty southern Rhône blend, but also distinctly rounder than most past vintages. Finishes savory and long, with good energy and suave tannins. Winemaker Louis Skinner did not have to do a saignée in 2017, unlike in '16, when the clusters were larger. (vinified with 20% whole clusters; no new oak)

Normalt er dette en blanding mellem Grenache, Nourvèdre, Syrah og Cinsault, men i 2017 ændrede de Cinsault til Couniose.
