Heiner Lobenberg über:
L' Aventure Cote a Cote 2016


Lobenberg: Ausgebaut in 30% neuer französischer Eiche, 28% Zweitbelegung, 33% in Beton und 9% in Amphoren. Mit dieser Cuvée hat Asseo eine Hommage an die Rhône geschaffen, die an erstklassigen Chateauneuf du Papes erinnert. In der Nase dunkle Kirschen, Amarena und rote Johannisbeeren, Gesteinsmehl und Glimmer. Bitterschokolade und dezent kräuterwürzige Kopfnote. Am Gaumen mit viskoser Haptik und stetem Fluss. Die Gerbstoffe sind top gereift und samtig bei immenser Dichte und herbem Nachhall, der den Wein formidabel konturiert. Mit extraktsüßer Frucht und feinem Schokofinish im langen Nachgeschmack. 96/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: L' Aventure Cote a Cote

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Côte a Côte is blockbuster and one of the wines of the vintage. A blend of 55% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, and the rest Syrah, brought up in a mix of 30% new French oak, 28% once used barrels, and the rest in amphora and concrete tanks, it offers a heavenly perfume of blueberries, blackberries, crushed violets, wild strawberries, ground pepper, and spring flowers. About as pure and seamless as it gets, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a multi-dimensional texture, no hard edges, and a huge finish. I finished my note on this wine with “Killer stuff!” You can drink this today or cellar it for 10-15 years. 98/100


Parker über: L' Aventure Cote a Cote

-- Parker: The 2016 Cote a Cote from L'Aventure offers up aromas of black cherries, clove, anise and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and expansive, with a broad attack, a sweet, rounded mid-palate and a firm, chewy finish that shows a bit of stem tannin. There's a nice juiciness and purity to this large-scaled, powerful effort that's a blend of 55% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah. 94/100


Galloni über: L' Aventure Cote a Cote

-- Galloni: Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Intensely perfumed red and blue fruit, floral pastille, cola and allspice aromas are sharpened by a powerful mineral note. Juicy and densely packed on the palate, offering sappy black currant and cherry-vanilla flavors that take on a spicy nuance with aeration. Finishes sweet, smooth and impressively long, displaying lingering spiciness and smooth, well-knit tannins. 94/100
