Cairanne Cuvée Maximilien, Domaine Les Grands Bois 2020
Tom Cannavan's selection of our Cairanne from Domaine Les Grands Bois as one of his budget wines of the year does not surprise me at all. It is all you want from a good, complex, Southern Rhône red.
Tom Cannavan's recent review (November 2021) from Wine-Pages.com:
"Not shy, not retiring with its 15% abv, this comes from Cairanne, one of the top appellations of the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages. The blend is typical of the south, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan pouring an intense crimson. Arresting floral aromas of violet and wild herbs leaping from the glass. There's something more mineral, graphite-like and serious lurking beneath the charming façade here too.
What a wonderful all-encompassing wine on the palate: rich, thick and brimming with sweet and ripe black fruit, but steely armour at its core gives it terrific concentration and considerable length. The tannins are profound, the acidity matching, but as the spice and black fruit intensity drives along, that's what's tasted on the finish. Will cellar 10 years."
