Cote du Rhone

94 points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Arcane Le Soleil is youthfully dark in color and fruit-forward, but it also shows softening, silky tannins. It's full bodied but not overblown, with a sensationally seductive mouthfeel. Black cherries define the fruit, joined by hints of dark chocolate and enough garrigue to give it a seriously savory character despite the fruit. Maybe the best Côte du Rhône Villages I've ever tasted.
