An amazing wine from 80y old, ungrafted vines, spontaneously fermented. White peaches & herbs, with a whiff of Mediterranean shrub & pine wood in the hot sun. Quite broad on the nose, on the palate unmistakably volcanic, tightly wound around a core of mineral acidity, with some bitter almond in the finish and lovely salinity. The wood gives a nice backdrop to the wine’s structure. This is soo good!

Typical Carignan - rocky, flinty, brambly & funky with meaty wild notes and a touch of eucalyptus in the finish. Deep underneath that you’ll find some blackberry. Vibrant acidity and tobacco tannins. Lacks a bit purity and is quite lean on the midpalate, but works nicely with mature cheese. — a month ago
A fine bottle of fizz, with tiny, persistent bubbles and good froth. Slightly off pink in colour with nice fruit (white peach and wild strawberries) and juicy acidity. A nice touch of mint / cardamon in the finish. This is really nice. — a month ago
Tannic, w. high extract and good fruit. The (quite sweet) oak still dominates and the tannins have not yet fully melted in. Not a bad Bordeaux but tries too hard and somehow misses the precision and balance. — 14 days ago
A more sweet & full PN with quite pronounced wood influence. Slightly Skript and with caramel and spice in the lead, this worked really well with spicy Afghan food, where the sweetness and soft tannins complemented the array of spices. Standalone this is simply too much of makeup and too little of purity. — a month ago
At first a bit reductive, but shows nice damson plum, aronia and raspberry. Juicy, charming, not overly complex but a very nice PN. — 15 days ago
Still young & fruity yet with nice secondary aromas evolving (roast meat, olives, tobacco leaf). Great balance, good weight and nice length. — 21 days ago
