Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Cercius red, a Visan Cotes du Rhone-Villages, is composed of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. It represents a naked expression of Cotes du Rhone as it is aged completely in concrete prior to bottling. This medium to full-bodied wine possesses a deep ruby/purple color in addition to copious black currant and black cherry fruit interwoven with graphite, crushed rocks, and spice, excellent fruit intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, good acidity, and light tannins. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.  (Aug 2010)

These are three terrific bargains from one of the top producers in the Costieres de Nimes, Michel Gassier, who works with renowned southern Rhone and Languedoc-Roussillon consultant, Philippe Cambie. (Aug 2010)
