Young but stellar already. Dark stewed red & black fruit, leather, incense, and more than a little freshly turned earth. Great structure - mouthwatering acidity with grippy and long tannic finish. Better than some Gigondas / CdP I’ve had recently. Long life ahead. — 7 days ago
Absolutely gorgeous! Deeply concentrated with alluring depth, almost bombastic but still maintains liveliness and pure drinkability. They nailed whole cluster and level of extraction. Beautiful texture, savory and lifted fruit components, almost semi-carbonic in character. Pure and ultra ripe black plum, logan berry, so much garrigue from scrubby herbs to lavender and candied olive, menthol, black peppercorn, vibrant Asian spices, leather, violets, citrus peel. — 3 days ago
Less acidity than many Roses and a little sweet, fruity and light. Very easy sipping. — 2 days ago
Smokey barnyard action.
Love that very complex nose.
Heavy bodied beauty bathed in dark flavor, Hints of genoveses basil, with prominent flavors of toasted blackberry,. A classically wonderful Rhône valley wine, orange peel acidity and well layered oak tannins. — 3 days ago

So, i over rated this knowing that it will get there. I know. It’s WAY too young, but i wanted to try. I love Mourvèdre, and this would be my pick of i could only ever pick one French wine. It took over an hour for the nose to develop. Tannins are tight as expected, but this bomb of a blend kills it. All kinds of red and black fruit, leave you wanting more. I love this — 3 days ago
Whoa. Pop and pour. On the nose:.intense black cherry, loads of garrigue and dried herbs, a touch of bacon fat, incense, blackberry cola, heady, but so aromatically complex and utterly enticing. On the palate, good acidity, black cherry, cola, herbs with a suggestion of the medicinal, very sweet blackberry...surprisingly light on its feet, then a soft, enveloping wave of palate coating, velvety tannin. There is perhaps a touch of alcoholic heat on the nose that betrays the 15% ABV this has, but that might just be the power of suggestion. Absolutely perfect for my mood tonight. — 10 days ago
Première expérience avec ce producteur mythique. On y retrouve le côté exubérant du viognier, ses fruits jaunes et ses fleurs, son amertume, mais le tout est élégant et sous contrôle. L'acidité est plus grande que la moyenne pour ce cépage, et l'ensemble est complété par des notes minérales (iode, pierre à fusil). Vraiment très bon. — 8 days ago
Carbonic Grenache from the Northern Rhône. Talk about an internal personality conflict. But it’s a very nice wine to slug down with dinner. Hard cherry and kirsch fruit over some nice granitic minerals. Reminiscent of a nice Bojo. Lively in the mouth, and there, too, displaying a Bojo like character, but with a bit more peppery heat showing through in the back half of the palate. — 13 days ago
