Decanter 90 Points for Les Six 2014

Decanter has awarded 90 Points (Highly Recommended) to Les Six, Cairanne, Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014 in their latest Côtes du Rhône Villages reds panel tasting (March 2017).


One of just two Cairanne's to be awarded 90 points judges commented that "The energy in this Cairanne is appealing; the palate bears blueberry fruit with a cool 2014 angle. It is authentic and powerful and ends with a fresh, menthol grip. It drinks with gusto, and finishes on tingling fennel notes."

Will Lyons, writing in UK publication The Sunday Times (5th February 2017) also praised Les Six 2014 "A mind-blowing six grape varieties go into this, from grenache noir, syrah and the little-known counoise. But all you really need to whet your appetite is the thought of soft, gentle fruit and a little rustic pepperiness. Oh, and the fact that it will go superbly with roast lamb."

Yet to be released, the 2015 vintage of Les Six , which will be the first labelled as the newly sanctioned Cairanne AOP, received 16- points from Jancis Robinson when tasted blind in Octobr 2016.
