Deeper and richer, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Antique offers more dark berry and wild strawberry fruits as well as plenty of violets, incense, and pepper. This medium to full-bodied effort has beautiful purity of fruit, an elegant, silky texture, and loads of charm. Drink it on release and over the coming 4-6 years. The blend is 90% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Clairette, and Mourvèdre.
