Love the work Navarre is doing, particularly with his “forgotten varietals” series. Carbonic nose, slightly prickly mouthfeel that dissipates with time. Very vivid and lively. Incredibly fresh for the Hérault, the schist gives this a distinct slate-y tone that cuts through the dominant wild berry character, with a roasted coffee note on the finish. Very natural and alive in feel. 12% alc. love it. — 8 days ago
Hapan ja kirpeä. Hyvä nautiskeluun mutta liian hapan dokaamiseen.

Big ripe dark fruits on the nose and a slight hint of black olives, a big lush mouthfeel with some chocolate notes that dissolves into light peppery tannins. Very pleasant. — 5 days ago

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /cloudy rim.
Fruity on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, currants, light wood, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, dark coffee and pencil lead. Really complex nose.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, wood, licorice, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, spices, light vanilla, espresso, dark chocolates and peppercorn.
Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and red chili pepper.
This 9 year old Red Blend from France is peaking now. Showing a great nose and a spicy palate.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Better after an hour of airtime, and becomes earthier as it opens up.
Easy drinking with nice complexity. Spicy and fruit forward. Good by itself or with food.
Not from a great vintage, but very drinkable now, even by itself. An interesting and engaging wine.
A blend of Cabernet Franc, Carignan and Syrah.
