Description

92+ points John Gilman, View from the Cellar
"The wine is raised mostly in stainless steel tank, with a percentage in older barrels and the 2018 comes in at fourteen percent octane. It offers up a deep and pure nose of cassis, pepper, grilled meats, black olive, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke and a bit of garrigue in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core of fruit, ripe, seamless tannins and a long, vibrant and beautifully balanced finish. This is outstanding wine in the making and an absolute steal! 2027-2050."

92 points Tim Atkin
"Lovely smoky aromas with notes of liquorice, black cherry, blueberry and some Asian spice. Power and texture here, with Syrah on stony clay and Mourvèdre on the more red clay soils. Ripe, grippy tannins and a touch of tobacco from some bottle age. 2023-2026."

Jancis Robinson
"Strikingly unusual nose – I can smell guava jam (something I haven’t smelt in 27 years) and tamarillo, rose hips and wood polish, and a tiny, intense floral note that makes me think of walking in the garden on a hot summer night. Wonderful freshness. It has the cool rustle of walking through russet leaves in autumn woodland. A touch of tamarind paste, white pepper, za’atar, baharat. I love the sense of metal sculpture I get in this wine – it’s not that I am literally tasting iron or rust or copper or pewter, but when I taste this wine, it’s like the wine version of a Rochelle Ford metal sculpture. It carries in its molecules the twist and sinews of the old vine trunks, the battering and weathering of nature and time, the glow of a thousand sunsets, edges and angles, sheen and rust, rain and dust. Very Good Value 17/20 points. (TC)."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Blend: 80% Syrah, 12% Grenache and 8% Mourvèdre. Named after three peaks in the Pyrenees that overlook the vines. This cuvee is always based on Syrah and it reflects the typical clay soils of Les Aspres that are laced with stones. The stones are a mix of schist, marble and granite. Aged mostly in tank with some older wood.
