New 2016 release, reviews for the 2015 vintage below...
"Year after year, Domaine Gilles Robin finds its way to our list of the greatest value-driven Northern Rhône red wines. Their organic farming practices and traditional approach to winemaking deliver benchmark expressions that are teeming with life, energy and a riveting fingerprint of their terroir. While the most famous and expensive examples of Northern Rhône reds hail from Hermitage, the 2015 Cuvée Papillon is derived from Crozes-Hermitage where vines surround the base of the great hill and offer a near mirror image of their pricey neighbour at an astounding value. In one sip, it will become evident why I order this food-friendly beauty whenever I encounter it on a well-curated wine list. This electric purple wine, bursting with a juicy core of black and blue fruit wrapped in classic spice, dried meat and violets, will charm Northern Rhône devotees and non-believers alike. If you are looking to understand Northern Rhône red wines or searching for an incredible value, this is a wine you should not miss."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2015 Vintage)
"Saturated purple black with a bouquet that’s dry and savoury with peppery spices, tar and leather. In the mouth it’s a well-structured, meaty red with firm fine-textured tannins, cigar box and pepper, wonderfully juicy Black Doris plums, blueberries and black cherries and a nuance of liquorice on the mouth-filling finish. This stunning 100% Syrah pitches way above its price point and the ‘free wing’ butterfly on the label adds its overall charm."
