2011 Alain Jaume Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Les Valats - 89 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 89 Pts"Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, the Alain Jaume 2011 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau Les Valats displays the baked, roasted herb-like characteristics of this hot appellation, intermixed with hints of chocolate, espresso, tar and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied, round, bold and exuberant, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-8 years. -JD"

2012 Alain Jaume Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Les Valats - 90-92 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 92 Pts"Along the same lines, the Alain Jaume 2012 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail is a mostly Grenache, with 20% Syrah, that’s aged 14 months in 20% barrels. Showing classic Gigondas spice, dried garrigue, saddle leather and blackberry and raspberry fruit, this medium to full-bodied Gigondas is loaded with Provencal character. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years. Drink now-2021.. -JD"

2015 Alain Jaume Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Les Valats - 89-91 PTS - WA

wa300"The 2015 Rasteau Les Valats is a big, rich, plum, licorice and scorched earth-scented red that has plenty of mid-palate flesh, building tannin and good freshness and focus. It has plenty of tannin, yet they’re mostly covered by a wealth of fruit. It should drink nicely right out of the gate, yet keep for 8-10 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"
