Note : 91
A serious white that has real cut and edge, the 2010 Domaine de Mourchon Côtes du Rhône Blanc La Source, 55% Viognier, 25% Roussanne, and the remainder Bourboulenc and Clairette, starts out tight and angular, but blossoms with air (a quick decant is recommended) and shows beautiful stone fruits, peach, underbrush, and wet rock/flint like minerality on the nose. Medium-bodied and rich, yet very focused and pure, with brilliant acidity and a classy feel, this straight up outstanding Côtes du Rhône Blanc should be purchased by the case, and consumed over the following year or two.
Note : 90
A classic blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that’s aged all in concrete tank, the 2010 Domaine de Mourchon Côtes du Rhône shows the quality of vintage with deep, red and black fruit driven aromas giving way to more subtle mineral, herb, licorice, and pepper nuances with air. This soft, supple, and beautifully balanced Côtes du Rhône has loads of fruit and texture, yet also holds on to considerable freshness, purity, and poise. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 2-4 years.
