Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan Cuvée Louise Amélie
91 points Wine Advocate
A sign of just how quickly Cuilleras has learned his trade is reflected in the Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Louise-Amelie. The version of this wine was too oaky, as this is the only cuvee that spends time in wood, only 20% new wood was used, most of that for the 10% Syrah component (the blend includes 90% Grenache). The terrific louise-amélie performs well above its humble origin. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of raspberry and cherry liqueur intermixed with subtle hints of vanilla and licorice. Chewy, deep, and full-bodied, with copious intensity as well as texture, it will drink well for 5-10 years. This is anexceptionally impressive offering, and may be one of the finest wines produced in the northern Cotes du Rhone village of Visan. A Great value.

>> Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan Vieilles Vignes
91 points Wine Advocate
The Cotes du Rhone-Villages Visan Vieilles Vignes (blend of 90% Grenache, 5% Carignan, and 5% Syrah, bottled without fining or filtration) reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of flowers, compost, black cherries, and cassis. Layered, full-bodied, pure, and elegant, it should drink well for 5-6 years. This is an exceptionally impressive offering, and may be one of the finest wines produced in the northern Cotes du Rhone village of Visan. A Great value.
