91 point Cairanne - great value

2012 Domaine Boisson L'Exigence Cairanne...$27.99
Cotes du Rhone Villages
The 2012 Cairanne l’Exignece is outstanding. Made from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre that spent 15 months in 60% concrete tank and 40% in older barrels, it offers beautiful black raspberry, cassis, licorice, spice and damp earth to go with a medium-bodied, supple, elegant and sweetly fruited character on the palate. I don’t see any reason to delay gratification here, but it should drink nicely for at least 5-6 years.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
