Cuvée Maximilien, Domaine Les Grands Bois 2017
Cairanne is with Rasteau the best of the 21 Côtes-du-Rhône Villages (Hugh Johnson ranks it above the Villages category) and this wine made with grenache, syrah, mourvèdre and carignan is a wonderful example of a lovely Rhône red. 2017 is a very good Rhône vintage and this Cairanne is a perfect example from a top appellation in brilliant growing conditions.
How does the wine taste?
Steady colour with tints of purple, an intense nose with ripe red fruit notes including raspberries, wild strawberries and a hint of pepper.
What do the critics say?
“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.”
