PRODUCT REVIEWS

Cairanne is with Rasteau the best of the 21 Cotes -du-Rhone Villages (Hugh Johnson ranks it above the Villages category) and this wine made with grenache, syrah , mourvedre & carignan is a wonderful example of a lovely Rhone red.

"Consistently one of my favourite estates in the Southern Rhône, Les Grands Bois produces Côtes-du-Rhône that consistently over-perform their appellation and modest prices." - Robert Parker . 

"The 2017 Domaine Les Grands Bois ‘Maximilien’, highly rated by the great Robert Parker, is a step up in quality, being from Cairanne itself, one of the 21 Côtes du Rhône villages. A previous vintage even made the cover of Decanter magazine, so darn tasty is it. A rich, dark, intense, mellow blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan, it’s spot on." - Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine

2016 is an exceptional Rhone vintage and this Cairanne is a perfect example from a top appellation in brilliant growing conditions. It follows on, and in our opinion is better than, the 2012 vintage of this wine which received outstanding reviews in Decanter (95/100) - the highest score of the category in which many wines were priced at over £20 a bottle.

Tasting note: Steady colour with tints of purple, an intense nose with ripe red fruit notes including berries, raspberries wild strawberries and a hint of pepper. A soft attack, good strength, mellow tannins which allow fruity and spicy notes to develop. Long and fleshy on the palate. Best with game and grilled red meats.
