Sweet, cherry flavours, floral secondary aromas of violet, also tertiary leather, smokiness. Long lasting smooth finish. Medium to high acidity.
Provencal and mountainous, sunny yet cool, the quality of this superb terroir is thanks to 5 key elements that give their names to the 5 cuvees of Sent Jean du Barroux: La Source (spring), L'Argile (clay), La Pierre Noire (black stone), Le Microclimat (microclimate) and La Montagne (mountain).

3.3. Lovely red, medium body with nice slightly light red color, wonderful mix of fruits and tannins. We liked this better than the somewhat more expensive Le Ponnant. On sale for $12.99, regularly $16.99. — 9 days ago
What a stunner. I’ve been so anxious to try the 2017 vintage from the Southern Rhône and if this is an indicator of the general quality then we’re really in for a treat. The Rasteau from Beaurenard is stacked with the freshest brambles, blueberries and lavender. On the palate the dark fruits are perfectly ripe and wonderfully fresh. There’s a delightful weight about it too. I can hardly wait to try the CdPs! — 4 days ago
60% grenache and 40% syrah, very low yields (15 - 20 hl/ha). This organic estate goes from strength to strength and this 2016 is a beauty that outshines many a Chateauneuf-du-Pape at twice the price. Black fruit and spices, fresh acidity and noble tannin. Has complexity and very good length too. Terrific value at less than 18 euro. Highly recommended. — 6 days ago
Not bad at all, had with Black Forest smoked ham for Easter but it’s depth emerged after dinner. At one point could not ignore the grapefruit, but the darkness could not be held back...good value. — 14 hours ago
Hot damn this delicious. Over delivering on all fronts. Perfect balance of whole cluster, extract and oak integration. From a plot above the Côte Brune on a plateau of schist and clay which creates a nice plumpness on the palate balanced by the acid profile of this wind-exposed site above the Côte Rôtie. Deeply hued, vibrant and seductively ripe blackberry and huckleberry notes, sweet smoked meat, roasted earth, olive tapenade, lavender, leather, tobacco, wood smoke, mocha. The juice and joyous feeling make for an easy drink but theres structural stuffing here to add a serious side. Can’t wait to revisit. — 21 days ago
We want the funk! A fantastic example of how a judicious touch of brett is the best seasoning for Syrah...and how too much of it makes Syrah smell like donkey ass. Really a perfect wine, for what it is. — 2 days ago
Had this on day two and the bottle was a little shaken. A bit passed its prime (but from questionable storage), it was still both enjoyable and very easily identified as a reynaud wine. — a day ago
