About This Wine...
The top wine from the estate and made from extremely small yields. Hard to believe this wine is from 2008 – tastes so fresh!
“As usual for this cuvee – is around three-quarters Carignan (the balance Grenache) and matured 60% in tank; the rest in new barriques. Rosemary, lavender, and otherwise resinous garrigue herbs ally themselves with ripe blackberry, peat, and saliva-inducing mineral salts on a dense, oily-textured palate underlain with fine, firm tannins, leading to a genuinely exhilarating finish, with sappy, mouthwatering, positively vibratory length that involves tactile and active impingement of stony and somehow almost crystalline mineral character.”
92-93/100 Robert Parker 2011
“Oaky and tannic, with rich, ripe, round and powerful fruit flavors.”
