Wine region: Provence - France
Grape: 50% Syrah, 50% Cabernet sauvignon.
Tasting notes: “The 2017 Alpilles Rouge is flat-out delicious. Ripe, plummy and forward, the 2017 offers tremendous immediacy. If I didn’t know how well Trévallon ages, I would be tempted to set an earlier drinking window, but the best is clearly yet to come. Next to other vintages that display a good bit of ripeness, the 2017 remains medium in body and silky. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, cedar and earthy notes lead into the vibrant, translucent finish. I hope I can capture just how captivating the 2017 is.” Vinous
Expert Rating:Vinous 95/100.
About the winery:There is no person that has done more to elevate the quality and prestige of the wines of Les Baux de Provence than Eloi Dürrbach, who began planting vines in the three valleys(Tre Vallon) in 1973. 20 years later in 1993, the AOC legislation authorized a maximum of 20% Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyards. The family chose to forego their appellation status and honor their blend, which had brought international attention to the appellation and to the domaine due to the pedigree and agreeability of the wines.
Today, the estate is heralded as a beacon for integrity and unwavering quality. Since their origin the vineyards have been managed organically. Everything here is done with devotion. Since their origin the farming is all organic, with an emphasis on deep root penetration and low yields. The winemaking is decidedly natural and non-interventionist. Fermentations are the whole cluster and aging is virtually all in neutral foudres.
