2014 vintage. Grenache (50%), Syrah (20%), Carignan (20%) and Mourvèdre (10%). Aged 12 months in barriques and concrete vats. Unfiltered and unfined. Granite soils. Blackberry jam, dried herbs, leather and a mineral note. Powerful taste with concentrated jammy blackberry fruit and intense spiciness, balanced by good acidity, ripe tannin and well-integrated high (15 % abv) alcohol. Very good spicy length. Great value at 17,9 euro. Drink the entire bottle, it doesn't show well the next day. — a month ago
Gorgeous s. French white. Delicate and wispy-textured, peach focused with a slatey backbone and salty finish. Understated and very very pretty. A great discovery, especially in the context of how little attention is paid to whites in the region. Best at cellar temp. Obviously young and improved steadily with a bit of air time — 3 days ago

This is a nice surprise. A very elegant sparkling wine from France. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity and good by itself or with food.
I paired it with a nice day by the pool.

Here’s another smoking good southern french white. Very interesting blend and the first time I can remember seeing Carignan Blanc. Also Roussanne Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. Sulfur needs to blow off. So beautifully textured and detailed. Glides across the palate. Green apple, citrus, almond, custard/fondant/banana on the palate and a floral, carnation (?) finish. Seductive. This would be so fun to throw into a blind tasting. Love. — a day ago
