France - Rhone - Southern Rhone - Cotes-du-Rhone
Rhone Blend

Jeb Dunnuck (28 August 2018): Spice, loamy soil, dried red fruits, and plenty of dried floral notes all emerge from the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Les Quartz, which shows more and more minerality with time in the glass. It's elegant and seamless on the palate, with building tannin, and is a terrific introduction into the wines of this estate. 93 Points

Robert Parkers's Wine Advocate

Exceeding my prebottling expectations, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Les Quartz is a terrific effort that puts many Châteauneufs to shame. Aromas of crushed stone and raspberries mark the nose of this 8515 Grenache-Syrah blend. It's full-bodied and rich, with hints of chocolaty ripeness balanced by citrus zest on the lengthy finish.


Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Côtes du Rhône Quartz offers a rare level of minerality and depth for a Côtes du Rhône, and anyone that loves southern Rhônes should buy bottles of this. Black raspberries, hints of cassis, crushed rock and dried garrigue characteristics flow to a rich, concentrated - even structured - effort that has the telltale elegance and purity of the estate. With ripe tannin, solid freshness and a great, great finish, it's going to drink nicely for a decade.
