By Philippe Cambie
 
 
By International Wine Report
Domaine de Dionysos Cotes du Rhone 'La Deveze' 2011
Points: 90

The 2011 La Devèze is composed of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. It offers aromas and flavors of plum, raspberry, pepper and sweet herbs. This has a gorgeous soft, silky texture; nice inner-sweetness and a velvety, spice-tinged finish. The La Devèze vineyard stretches over 50 acres of sand and clay soils, on well-exposed slopes facing south and west. The harvest goes through a sorting table and only the finest grapes are chosen. They are entirely de-stemmed and fermentation takes place within temperature-controlled concrete tanks. (Best 2013-2016) - March, 2013 (JD)

Domaine de Dionysos Cotes du Rhone 2011 La Deveze
50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 10% Cinsault

La Deveze is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan from 30-year-old vines planted north of the town of Orange, on a parcel of land in Uchaux and Mondragon from which the wine takes its name. The soils here have a sandy surface, covering clay subsoil. Since the vineyard slopes are well exposed (bringing the fruit to full maturity), this helps prevent drought stress by retaining water. Low yields guarantee good concentration of aromas in the wine, and the vineyard is now certified organic (after being in conversion for the last few years). Winemaking is traditional, in the sense that cultured yeast is not used, and is performed under controlled temperatures. A long maceration (at least 10 days) and daily pumping-over and racking precede an aging in one-third oak barrels for 6 months. The final wine expresses these elements of its terroir and winemaking well, with a vivid nose of fruit, red in particular, and supple tannins wrapped around a good strong structure all the way through the finish, where overtones of violet and raspberry recur. Grenache and Cinsault bring a warmth and mellowness, while Syrah and Carignan bring robustness, maturity and color. This is the Rhone Valley embodied, in Philippe Cambie’s trademark style. Winemaking consultant at the property for the past few years, he is credited with reviving the wines of the Rhone Valley in the past couple of decades, and was named Winemaker of the Year by Robert Parker in 2010.

Domaine de Dionysos is the union of two properties, “La Devèze” and “La Cigalette”, located in the village of Uchaux les Farjon. The Farjon family established themselves there in 1720 after fleeing Marseilles during the Black Plague. The estate is currently managed by André Farjon, and has been under organic conversion since 2008 (certified organic for the 2011 vintage!). The La Devèze vineyard stretches over 50 acres of sand and clay soils, on well-exposed slopes facing south and west. The vineyard is planted with 30-year-old vines of Grenache and Cinsault for sweetness, warmth and mellowness, and Syrah and Carignan for robustness, maturity and color. Yield 35-40 hL/ha. The harvest goes through a sorting table and only the finest grapes are chosen. They are entirely de-stemmed and fermentation takes place within temperature-controlled concrete tanks. After being aged in French oak barrels for a short period of time (6mths) only 48,000 bottles reach the quality standard for “La Deveze”.

Rhône Valley

The 2011 harvest has most Rhône vintners exceedingly optimistic for a third straight outstanding year…

...fans of fruit-forward, accessible wines will find plenty to like from '11, which looks to be an ideal candidate for restaurants as well as for wine lovers who lack the facilities or patience for long-term storage. Fans of graceful, fruit-driven Rhone wines will find plenty to like from 2011 and, as was the case in 2008, 2006 and 2004…

Michel Chapoutier on 2011 in Rhone Valley: A detailed Early Report

26 Octobre 2011
The tastings of the 2011 vintage have recently given an opportunity for Michel Chapoutier to give his first impressions of the quality of this vintage for the appellations of the Rhone Valley. Prior to the presentation of each appellation, he noted that "after a warm and sunny 2009 vintage that resulted in the exuberance of grape varieties, 2010 was a fresher year with slow maturities which generally gave tense wines - to those who were able to wait for the phenolic maturity - some mineral wines, elegant with an outward expression of the soil, we have got 2011 which is a combination of these two great vintages. "
"This 2011 harvest in Rhone Valley was both early and late: a real paradox!"

James Molesworth

Posted: February 3, 2012
The large swath of France’s Southern Rhône Valley outside of Châteauneuf-du-Pape continues to churn out an ocean of ripe, mouthfilling, character-filled reds at often very modest prices...Also working near Cairanne is André Farjon, whose Domaine de Dionysos produces lush blue- and black-fruit-filled wines.

2011 Domaine de Dionysos Cotes du Rhone la Deveze
A Proprietary Blend Dry Red Table wine from Cotes du Rhone, Southern Rhone, Rhone, France
Review by Jeb Dunnuck
Wine Advocate # 209 (Oct 2013)
Rating: 87
Drink 2013 - 2016
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan that spent six months in oak barrels, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone La Deveze is a light, supple and delicious effort that has good cherry and red currant fruit, spice and tinges of garrigue to go with a medium-bodied, lightly concentrated and balanced palate. There’s not a whole lot of depth here, but it’s very easy-drinking and nicely balanced. Enjoy it over the coming couple of years. Drink now-2016. Importer: Serge Dore Selections, Chappaqua, NY; tel. (914) 861-9206
