Love it! Slight earthy funk on the nose. Lots of ripe and stewed blackberries. Fantastic long finish.

Second bottle of this in as many months. Still impressed at the complexity this brings for the $$$.

December 2020. Sheltering from the pandemic this winter in Tucson. Silver lining for sure. Purchased at Feast, Bastille Day sale in July. Syrah/Grenache blend from Languedoc. Dark fruit and spice, but not peppery like Syrah can be. Easy drinking, enjoyable. Good QPR. Love a Languedoc red blend. This one did not disappoint 😁

Traditional excellent Northern Rhône heritage is on display and proof is in this wine. A smooth red blend exhibiting hidden ripe berries. With an intensity to pair well with burgers and family gatherings.

Languedoc Syrah-based blend with serious pedigree. Tannins integrating, fantastic fruit/herb/garrigue accord, and an earthy finish, like Swiss chard.

Felt young,. Super herbaceous and smelling like a butcher’s shop that’s caught fire, but the different harmonies need a little time to come into place with each other.
