92pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Pour your first glasses of the Domaine les Grands Bois Cuvees Philippine Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Rouge and tuck into a loaded plate of charcuterie, crusty baguette, pate de campagne and cornichons. It really is a great way to start a meal. This French gem is terrifically food versatile; pair it with everything from roast chicken to pizza and baked pasta dishes. Try it with garlicky sausage over a bed of lentils, drizzled with a warm vinaigrette. Roast pigeon with raisins and pine nuts will surely delight. Or, bring out the very subtle licorice with lamb meatballs made with fennel and herbes de Provence over pasta. Open another bottle and serve it with an English Red Leicester cheese as you toast your smarts for finding such a great deal. Cheers!

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "A terrific effort, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Sainte-Cecile Cuvee Philippine is a blend of 55% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 10% Carignan. Picked at yields resembling those of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (35 hectoliters per hectare), this full-bodied, opulent wine equals some of its more famous brethren. Exhilarating black cherry fruit cascades across the palate, bringing with it hints of garrigue, pepper and licorice, then glides to a long, serene, silky finish. It should drink well for at least 5-6 years." Nov 2017

Winery:  "Lovely cherry-hued robe, very clear. On the nose essence of black cherries, strawberry jelly and sweet spices. On the palate, beautiful structure with rounded tannins supports a very successful ensemble with a velvety pulpit of blackberries, licorice and peppery notes.

Pair with perfectly grilled red meats or in sauces made with the same wine and mushrooms."
