En magnum. Family brought this back from a trip to France, and held on to it for a few years - which made it extra special. The Syrah really came through in terms of weight and spice (not gamey). Very balanced and very nice.

Gracefully aged & well balanced. The firmness of the tannins makes me think it could still go but why wait when it's a joy to drink now.

A lovely blend from Langudoc, 45% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, a firm body full of sun and presence. Deep dark purple, lavish aromas of violets, black current, licorice, leather, blueberry, spices and cedar wood, all to support a full chewy body, full of ripe fruit, lovely acidity and a long lasting finish. Not for the faint hearted, defiantly for new world lover, even though it seem that this winery is dating back to the 12th century. My score 88+, drink to 2024

Cherry syrup, mint, smoky, meaty. Juicy but still with some firm tannins. Light on its feet as well. Almost right bank-esque. Killer!
