Holy crap this was incredible. I purchased at the domaine in colliure back in 2011. I remember these wines being good but wow! Super dark mahogany color. Incredible (almost negly port du ciel style) nose of sandalwood, bramble blackberry, coffee, camphor, incense and baking spice. The palate is rich and lush but with minerality that gives this beauty lift and keeps it fresh on the palate and not porty at all. It could easily go another decade (it barely showed any tertiary fruit today). Literally better than any 2007 cdp I’ve tasted recently. I was getting bored with wine lately and this one really got my reinvigorated — a month ago
Dark & brooding with rich, brambly blackberries & blueberries with some uplifting cherry, a bit of garrigue herbs and a whiff of roast.
On the palate this has some weight with chewy, juicy tannins and rich, ripe fruit. Yet there’s bright acidity, a savoury Süd- to it and great freshness as well, despite the 14.5% alc.
Went very well with grilled aubergines & peppers with feta & harissa. — 4 days ago
This tastes like a really good version of exactly what you think it would taste like. A good southern French red red that is - kinda foxy, vinous, with some earth and pepper on the palate, some green notes, and a macerated blackberry / raspberry core. Weighty, but with a nice beam of acidity and grainy tannins. Solid wine. Great match with carbonara, it would have killed with caccio e Pepe — 19 days ago

Difficile da decifrare. Tra il Bret e il ridotto però buono 😁 — 17 days ago
Blueberry notes, round fruit bouquet, medium to full body with lingering fruit notes. — 21 days ago
A blend of the best Petit Verdot and Touriga Nacional grapes of the domaine, that were aged in French oak for 24 m.
The wine has an enchanting smooth an inviting nose with tempting notes of vanilla, levander, red berries, black currents, and a touch of spice.
The body is full, balanced , smooth , elegant and delicious with lovely fruit, smooth round tannins and balanced acidity. The finish is long, smooth and lightly dry.
Overall a delicious wine, a touch polished and lightly flattering which guarantee a lot of fans.
My score 90+, drink to 2025

What a perfect Vin de Table, biodynamic unfiltered Chardonnay. Floral and fruity, like nashi, golden kiwi, pear peel. Very Harmonic acidity!!
Dazu: Wachtel - Sauerampfer - Trüffel- Lauch / geröstete Karotten - Kartoffel - Sternanis / Kopfsalat - Walnussöl — 10 days ago
