Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93
"Opaque magenta. Deep-pitched, spice-accented cherry, blueberry, licorice and fruitcake scents are energized by building floral and mineral flourishes. Intense red and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors take on suggestions of allspice and bitter chocolate. Turns sweeter with air and finishes on a youthfully tannic note, delivering resonating cherry and floral notes and impressive tenacity." -Vinous

Decanter

D 92
"This is a modern, hedonistic style of Châteauneuf. Bay leaf, black olive, blackberry, demerara sugar and prune. Very ripe, but there is an inner freshness and good definition to the flavours. Already it is taking on the complexity of very ripe Grenache, and this should build. Alcohol is high. Organically grown on the sandy soils of Le Cristia and La Font du Loup. Aged for 18 months in oak before release, one-third in new barriques, two-thirds in demi-muid."

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"Ripe but restrained, with a bit of charm to its raspberry and cherry coulis notes that mix with red tea, mineral and singed cedar accents. The fruit darkens up a touch through the finish, with a juicy edge lingering."

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

60% Grenache from 110-year-old vines in Cristia Haut lieu-dit and 40% Mourvedre from 55-year-old vines in the southeast part of the appellation. The vines grow in a sandy clay soil with eastern exposure. All aged in wood, 1/3 in new oak, 1/3 in one-year-old barrels, 1/3 in demi-muids. Destemmed.
