"In the northern Vaucluse, on the right bank of the Rhone River, lies the village of Visan where the legendary mistral winds of Provence sweep over the vines. The Latin name for these north-northwest winds is Cercius – the defining feature and raison d'etre for partners Michel Gassier, Philippe Cambie, and Eric Solomon to launch this new project. Between the brisk winds and an elevation of 1200 feet, the grapes' freshness is protected and then preserved during vinification in concrete tanks." —winemaker

Blend: 85% Grenache, 15% Syrah
"The 2013 Cotes du Rhone Cercius Vieilles Vignes from the Plateau de Domazan, is a 7,000-case blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah aged six months in concrete. Cercius is the Latin name for the legendary north/south whipping winds called the Mistral that dominate the southern Rhone Valley for one hundred or so days a year. The deep ruby/purple-colored 2013 Cercius boasts a stunning nose of camphor, incense, blackberries, cassis, kirsch and licorice. This full-bodied, opulent, saturated, fruit-dominated red wine is super-pure, incredibly well-balanced, full and stunning. Drink it over the next 2-3 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
