Very smooth with well balanced fruit and mineral flavors. A touch dry but just the right amount. Ripe cherry and mild herb notes. A touch of richness elevates this.

Light color and weight but strong acidity. Notes of strawberry but flavors of black currants. Perhaps still a little young.

A lot of of cherries, strawberries, cranberries and raspberries on the nose. Not much flavor and the finish was very tart to me. Don't like Grenache too much. Like Syrah, but tasted none in this wine. Wife liked it a lot!

Full. Strong mid palette. Muted blackberries. Would pair well with garlic and sage pasta

A beautifully elegant expression of the Southern Rhône from M. Chapoutier. Briary with an elegant woodsiness of dried leaves, sage, rosemary and brush. A wet riverbed scent that lingers over the fruit. Laced with fresh lavender and an olive like brininess. Perfect alongside a lamb burger overloaded with rosemary and French brebirousse. The brambly jam the burger needs.
