Nellcôte Mansion in the south of France was leased from April 1971 to March 1972 by Keith Richards, guitarist of The Rolling Stones, and recording sessions for the band's classic 1972 album Exile on Main St. took place in its basement. The Nellcôte label pays hommage to the Stones and Tyler's experience meeting them and seeing them play during his time in the area.
93pts Wine Enthusiast: Big and juicy, this bold red offers tar and a touch of reduction on the nose. The palate shows tobacco, black cherry and polished, sizable tannins that add weight and density to the midpalate before unfurling a soft, spicy finish of clove and black pepper.
92 points - James Suckling: Blackcurrant and chocolate aromas are prevalent here. Palate is full-bodied, softly textured and fruity. Give it two or three years to come together. Drink in 2020.
