Alain Voge 2017 Cotes du Rhone "Les Peyrouses" 750ml
Deep vivid ruby. Fresh black currant, cherry, licorice, olive and cracked pepper scents pick up a floral quality with air. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering spice-tinged dark fruit and floral pastille flavors and a hint of smokiness. Closes with repeating licorice and floral character, gentle tannins and very good persistence.
Score: 90 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 2019
