Very good quality wine with a good balance between ripe fruit and fresh acidity, and a stony minerality. soft and approachable, yet present tannins frames the fruit nicely. Good concentration, moderate complexity and a solid lenght.

Aptly named “Garrigues”. Thyme, lavender. Silky and savory red fruit with powdery tannin.
Ripe, 14.5% alc.

Licorice, garrigue, big brambly fruity aromas and smooth tannins. Not a ton of structure but super enjoyable. Not showing quite as well as last time.

No note but this was just crazy concentrated, aromatic, energetic, drinking perfect now. As good as many a CDP.

Well well a word class wine, soon 10 years and so lively and fresh - one of my favorite producer for sure and undoubtedly one of the best in Rhone 😋👍

This was a request as an alternative to another Rhone area wine and is quite good. It needs a little airing, but blossomed into a very rich complex wine. A bit Tanic at first but really aired out beautifully
