Violet. Mørk duft med brombær, let tjære/asfalt, sveskeblomme, diskret modensødme og modent duftspektre. Smagen er mørk og fed med brombær, tjære/asfalt, træ, sveskeblomme og krydrede noter i en fast smag med masser af frugttyngde og intensitet. Stadig meget træ og fad men det er pakket nydeligt ind i fed frugt i læssevis. Slutter med en del tanniner og bittertoner. Kan godt drikkes nu men vil vinde over de næste par år. Flot, Flot Cote du Rhone der virkelig gør et indtryk. Kanonvin til spotpris - fremragende til prisen. Drik 2016-2020. 91 point


"Charmefuld sag med masser af Côtes du Rhône sjæl. Herbes de Provence i næsen og fin mellemfyldig mund med bløde tanniner og mineralske noter pakket ind i delikate pebertoner." 5 af 6 stjerner.


"Rarely does a 100% Syrah cuvee from the Southern Rhone rock my boat (with a few exceptions such as Fonsalette’s Cuvee Syrah), but Aphillanthes’ 2011 Cotes du Rhone Les Cros does just that. Made from 100% Syrah aged in small barrels and larger demi-muids, this is a superb, opaque purple-colored, full-bodied Syrah boasting lots of creme de cassis, camphor and floral notes. With soft tannins, low acidity and a rich, deep, multidimensional and layered mouthfeel, it should age nicely for a decade or more.

Along with Peter Weygandt, I coincidentally discovered this fine estate with the release of their 1999s. Proprietor Daniel Boulle has done brilliant work over the last decade plus, and now works with the talented Philippe Cambie as his oenologist. The wines continue to go from strength to strength, including these less expensive offerings. If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Domaine Les Aphillanthes, it’s time to do so."

Om tidligere årgang


"The 2010 Cotes du Rhone Le Cros (100% Syrah) is a strong example of this often maligned varietal in the southern Rhone. A dense purple color is followed by scents of blackberries, acacia flowers and licorice offered in a deep, full-bodied style. Still primary in its aromas and flavors, it tastes more like a barrel sample than a bottled wine. One of the estate's few wines that is aged in small oak barrels (in this case for 12 months), it will benefit from 1-2 more years of bottle age and should keep for a decade.

In 1999, I discovered one of the finest estates in the southern Rhone, the Domaine Les Aphillanthes owned by Daniel Boulle. His oenologist is none other than Philippe Cambie and his commitment to quality is evidenced by the fact that he refused to bottle any 2008s. Following that troublesome year, Boulle has produced some impressive 2009s and 2010s. This is a certified organically managed vineyard with practices increasingly moving toward biodynamic." 91+ point

Rhone Report:
"Even richer, with additional depth and richness, the 2010 Cuvée 3 Cépages is a blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, that gets harvested all at the same time in October when the Mourvedre finally gets ripe. This results in ultra ripe Grenache and Syrah, and while it is no lightweight, it stays beautifully fresh and light on the palate. Deep, rich, and layered, with copious blackberry, toasted spice, dusty minerality, and ground pepper, this full-bodied Côtes du Rhône is uncommonly concentrated and possesses a brilliant textured, notable purity, and grippy tannin that gives the wine plenty of edge and cut on the blockbuster, heady finish. It is already reasonably approachable"

Domaine Aphillanthes råder over ialt 37 ha. beliggende i det sydlige Cotes du Rhone delta.

Ejeren Daniel Boulle overtog domænet - som 4. generation - i 1986, hvorefter han straks iværksatte renovering af kældre som vinmarker.

Vinene blev meget kendte i slutningen af 1990erne, da det amerikanske vinjournalist Robert Parker slog vejen forbi på en søndagstur, og skrev så siden hen om domænet: ("maybe the richest Cotes du Rhone I have tasted").
Idag er vinene blandt de bedste og mest kendte Cotes du Rhone Villages der kan opdrives.
