Domaine les Hautes Cances Cotes du Rhone 'Cuvee Tradition' 2014
This is far from the first time I've had the wines of Hautes Cances, and some of you might remember it as well. Nearly two years ago, Guild co-founder and wine OG Will Richey recommended the wines of Hautes Cances – and many of us fell in love with these wines.
Fast-forward to last night: an old friend (and new Guild member) came by, and we tried one of his favorites...the Hautes Cances Cuvee Tradition! With all the wine that crosses my palate every week, I'd almost forgotten how insanely good this stuff is. It's like a breath of fresh air, it sends chills down your spine and you just want to bathe in it. The nose is intoxicating, inviting, elegant; the palate is vibrant, regal, substantive, and utterly satisfying. I have more superlatives I could throw at it, but I think you get the picture.
I'll let Will from 2017 tell you more about the wine if you like, but suffice it to say that you need some. There's only about 11 cases left of the 2014, so we may have to do a bit of creative allocating if things get crazy, but them's the breaks. One thing's for sure: it probably won't last long.
