Karen MacNeil - The Wine Bible
"This absolutely scrumptious and legendary wine is not to be missed. Black, thick and silky, in most years it's got almost hauntingly masculine, earthy, minerally aroma. The flavors all suggest wildness - wild blackberries and brambles; wild resiny herbs; wild tangles of dried brush; wild exotic spices. Domaine de Trevallon's vineyards are on the edge of rocky Alpilles Mountains, surrounded by the eerie, desolate landscape of the Val d'Enfer ("Valley of Hell"). The domaine specializes in cabernet sauvignon, which here turns into wines as startling and dramatic as the land itself. Indeed, were it not for the large percentage of cabernet, the wine would carry the AOC designation Les Baux de Provence. But Les Baux limits the amount of cabernet a wine can have, and thus the appellation of this fantastic red is Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhone".
