1 x Lavau Cotes du Rhone Red 2018 - Rhone, France
2 Stars, Le Guide Hachette des Vins Awarded: 2016 (2012 vintage)
The Winemaker "The delicately oaky nose offers up aromas of sweet spices which subtly mingle with notes of blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate, there is a concentration of aromas underpinned by pronounced, yet lovely smooth, tannins." (2016 Vintage)

9.5 stars / 10 Monvin Francais
87/100 Wine Enthusiast (2018 vintage)
Wine Enthusiast “While the nose is restrained, the palate of this dry white blend offers zesty apple and pear marked by hints of anise and pepper. It's full bodied and easy drinking, best enjoyed now through 2023” (2018 vintage)
Jeb Dunnuck "A blend of 40% Marsanne, 30% Roussanne, 20% Vermentino, and 10% Viognier. The 2017 Costières de Nimes Blanc has a great bouquet of ripe orchard fruits, white flowers, fresh pineapple, apple blossoms and hints of almonds. It's deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured on the palate, and has real class. Drink this rich, seriously impressive southern Rhone white over the coming 2-4 years." (2017 Vintage)
Clos des Centenaires was founded Luc Baudet of Chateau Mas-Neuf fame, and Californian wine industry veteran, Jack Edwards who both share a passion for artisan wines and the terroir of France’s Southern Rhone.

Robert Parker "A blend of 45% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% each Rolle (Vermentino) and Syrah, plus 5% each of Mourvèdre, Sémillon and Tibouren, Tamary's 2020 Cotes de Provence Rose is a pale, coppery rosé that reveals hints of brine to go alongside peach, melon and citrus notes. It's medium-bodied and nicely rounded and generous on the palate, with a gentle, easy-drinking and harmonious finish."
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "A blend of six grapes, this pale-pink wine is aromatic and attractively ripe, with a mineral edge to freshness. The red fruits, citrus flavors and crisp aftertaste make the wine immediately attractive. Drink now."
Decanter "Owned by Jean-Luc Zuger of Malescot St Exupéry (along with Frédéric Salin of Salin négociants), this is savoury to the point that you can almost taste a salt-licked tang on the finish, and the slate texture is marked, as are gentle redcurrant notes. This quality makes it quite unusual, and gives it presence. One for fans of not overly sweet rosés - of which I am one." (2019 Vintage)
Robert Parker "A blend of 40% each Cinsault and Grenache, with 13% Syrah and 7% Mourvèdre, Tamary's 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose offers sedate notes of cantaloupe and lime zest. It's medium-bodied and plump in the mouth, with that zesty, slightly bitter note providing energy across the palate and through the long finish." (2019 Vintage)
