"The 2014 Côtes du Rhône Villages Cuvee Philippine is the same wine as the Gabrielle, only aged all in tank whereas the Gabrielle is aged in barrel. Similar in quality, with jammy black raspberry and blackberry fruits, underbrush, spring flowers and garrigue, it’s medium to full-bodied, pure, textured and loaded with character. It too will drink nicely for 4-5 years.
A terrific Cairanne and Cotes du Rhone based estate, Domaine Les Grands Bois appears capable of fashioning outstanding wines regardless of the vintage. Their 2013s showed beautifully last year, and their 2014s are every bit as good this year. In addition to consistent quality, the prices remain more than reasonable."
