Description

94 points James Suckling
"Very impressive youthful nose of laurier, black olives and forest berries. Rich, ripe and expansive on the palate, but with a wonderful interplay of fruit, full fine tannins, plus touches of tar and licorice character that continues very evenly through the long finish. A cuvee of 80% grenache and 20% syrah. Drink or hold."

Vinous Reverie Notes
The village of Lirac sits on the “rive gauche,” or right banks of the Rhone river, due west from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The 'Marie Jausset' is a tribute to the founder of the family Domaine, the great-grandmother of winemaker Thierry Sabon, who inherited vines in Chateauneuf that would become Clos du Mont-Olivet. Here Thierry selects the best parcels from new holdings in Lirac, near Saint Laurent des Arbres and Saint-Genies de Comolas, with terroir rich in sand and quartz stone. Offering an “echo,” says Thierry, of the profundity and ageability of the estate's 'Cuvee de Papet,' 'Marie Jausset' is a wine to collect and savor for the ages.
