Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Suckling

The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Arcane XIX 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. This is an old-vine blend of 80% Grenache with 10% each Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged 15 months in one-third new oak, the rest in concrete or foudre. Maybe the best Côte du Rhône Villages I've ever tasted, it looks to have the stuffing to go another 10 years.

— Joe Czerwinski (31/10/2017)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2015 - 94 PARKER

This is a very composed and concentrated style with intense, fresh red-berry and cherry aromas, delivered in a concentrated, fresh and energetic style. Impressive wine. Drink or hold.
