The nose offer cherry, blossom and bouquet garni. The taste is pure and lively, with red summer fruits (berries, cherries, raspberry) and herbs. Light-footed, fruit-dominated and absolutely delicious.Shows plenty of character, though less generous than 2015, rather ‘crisp’. No excess here; ‘just’ offering plenty of drinking pleasure.[September 2018]
Aphillanthes sets the standard for a good quality Côtes du Rhône and is a reference for the appellation.Bravo Daniel!
Joe Czerwinski/Wine Advocate: “The entry-level 2016 Cotes du Rhone is a crisp, fruity wine without much tannin. The blend delivers bright raspberry and cherry fruit—simple fruity goodness for quaffing over the next few years.”
