In his February issue, the Wine Spectator dedicated an article to Rhone valley wines, including Château de Marjolet and Domaine Galévan, two rising stars of our selection.

 

Château de MARJOLET Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2010 - 88 pts
Ripe and forward, with a solid core of dark plum and blueberry fruit laced gently with a singed vanilla bean note. Features a lightly dusty hint on the finish. Drink now.

Château de MARJOLET Cuvée Tradition Côtes du Rhône-Villages Laudun 2010 - 89 pts
This has a nice gusty feel, with blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit interwined at the core, surrounded by a frame of toasted spice and black tea. Drink now through 2014.

Domaine GALEVAN Paroles de Femme Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2009 - 87 pts
Mesquite abd sanguine notes lead the way, with lightly mulled cherry and red currant fruit glidning through the finish, where a cedar echo lingers. Drink now.

Domaine GALEVAN Esprit DeVin Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2009 - 89 pts
A dark, roasted style, with coffe and vanilla bean notes woven deeply into the fabric of the plum, steeped currant and blackberry coulis flavors. A sanguine flash on the finish keeps this honest enough, though the toast hangs on. Drink now through 2014.

 Domaine GALEVAN Cuvée Saint Georges Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009 - 89 pts
Shows the ripe, rounded, fleshy profile of the vintage, with a cocoa coating to the friendly dark plum, blackberry abd logangerry fruit flavors that meld nicely through the toast-tinged finish. Drink now through 2016.
