Winemaker Notes:

Les Deux Albions is one of the outstanding wines of Louis Barruol’s collection and highlights the exceptional value that can still be found in the Côtes-du-Rhône category. The wine combines depth, structure, and finesse with aromas and flavors of roasted game, mesquite, and olive, crushed plum, and black currants. Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah. 

 

Blend:

50% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 15% Carignan, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Clairette

Critical Acclaim

 

Critical Acclaim:

93-James Suckling

This has a very attractive, dark-stone and black-fruit nose with rich and intense blackberries and licorice and some savory, rust-like, sanguine elements. There’s clay soil and iron to dry this. The richness and depth are impressive and there’s a wealth of intense, rich and very concentrated fruit on offer. Dark plums, blue fruit and long, succulent tannins. Spicy finish. 

 

92-Wine Enthusiast

An elevated Côtes du Rhône, this blend of five grape varieties is sourced from the communes of Plan de Dieu, Saint Maurice and Cairanne. Packed with ripe blackberry and plum flavors it also offers elegant notes of bramble, sage and violet. Lively and perfumed, the wine is balanced by crisp acidity and very fine, smooth tannins. Lovely now it should improve through 2027.

 

90-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Compact and a bit tannic this vintage, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albions is a Grenache-Syrah blend. Blueberries, cherries and dried spices provide plenty of flavor in this full-bodied offering that should be at its best over the next 5-6 years.

 

90-Wine Spectator

Lively mesquite and black tea notes give this aromatic complexity, with the core of black cherry and plum fruit taking on a nice mulled hint. Offers good juicy energy. Drink now through 2021.
