Domaine d’Andezon Cotes du Rhone 2016 – 750ML

WA 91

In 1994 Eric Solomon visited the Vignerons d’Estézargues and met a young, passionate director/winemaker named Jean-François Nicq. By the end of the day, they had decided on a custom bottling of old vine Syrah from one of their best parcels, Domaine d’Andezon. This opaque-black, blockbuster Syrah could have been a top Northern Rhone wine. What a find! Previously sold in bulk (vinous suicide) to a very famous producer in the Rhone Valley, Eric jumped at the opportunity to spotlight this unique expression of Syrah from a little-knowm corner of the Rhône valley. Depending on the vintage, up to 10% of the blend is Grenache from the same terroir as the Syrah.

Wine Advocate

91 points - Wine Advocate // Long-time American readers should already know this wine, as it has been a staple in the Eric Solomon portfolio for more than a decade. The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Andezon is 100% Syrah, aged entirely in tank. It's a lush, medium to full-bodied wine bursting with ripe blackberries and blueberries. No, it doesn't have the peppery spice of Syrah from the northern Rhône, but it does have enough cola-like spicy complexity to warrant an outstanding rating. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. -Joe Czerwinski (November, 2017)
