Wine Advocate-Parker :89
From vines located around the estate and just over the northern border of Châteauneuf du Pape, the 2014 Côtes du Rhône Lieu Dit Clavin offers lots of ripe red currants, toasted spice, licorice and crushed herbs in a medium-bodied, mouth filling and Provençal character. You can feel the tannin on the mid-palate and finish
To pair with: a splendid apple pie or a pork loin with apricots.
