Grenache, Mourvédre, Syrah

One of the few estates to use all permitted varieties, this served Vincent well in 2013 where Mourvèdre and Syrah came to the rescue of a less productive Grenache. It comprises 55 percent Grenache, 30 percent Mourvèdre, 10 percent Syrah and five percent of other varieties (Counoise, Vaccarèse etc).

About This Wine...

“Sumptuous aroma: rich in fruit but with a fine peppery nose that is almost more northern than southern Rhône. On the palate too I would have thought this was majority Syrah. Super-refined texture and lovely freshness. Brilliant wine with a long future but, amazingly, delicious now in an embryonic sort of way. Drink 2018 – 2030.”

17.5/20 Jancis Robinson 2015

 

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to taste Vincent’s 2015 from foudre, but his 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is certainly one of the wines of the vintage. And while it possesses terrific notes of peppery herbs, Provençal spice, kirsch and darker berry fruits, it’s on the palate where this beauty shines! Medium to full-bodied, incredibly balanced, seamless and pure, with beautiful fruit, it has present tannin, terrific mid-palate depth and a great finish. It won’t be the longest lived wine from the estate, but it’s beautiful and will certainly drink well for a decade DRINK 2016 – 2026..”

93/100 Robert Parker 2016
