A joint venture between Gassier, Philippe Cambie, and importer Eric Solomon, the 2012 Cercius Vieilles Vignes is a year in, year out ridiculous value that also drinks well past its humble price point. Comprised of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that was aged for 6 months in concrete, it has loads of raspberry, licorice, mineral and Provencal herbs as well as a soft, supple and silky textured feel on the palate. Coming from old Grenache vines (70–90 years in age) located on the Plateau de Domazan — which lies on the right bank of the Rhone river, just west of Avignon — and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is a quintessential Cotes du Rhone that will deliver the goods for 4–5 years, possibly longer.
