"Wine from this south-southwest facing lieu-dit shows the importance of terroir. As much as I liked Simonnet-Febvre's straight Irancy, this one is just better, although not for current drinking. Tighter and, despite no César in the blend, it's more tannic than their straight Irancy. The focus is on minerals rather than red fruit, although the fruitiness comes through. It carries the 14.5% stated alcohol effortlessly. Similar to their village bottling, this Paradis bottling has refinement along with its structure. Alluring subtle bitterness in the finish reinforces its stature. Drinking Window 2024 - 2032."

"A lacy red, displaying strawberry, cherry, currant and stone flavors. Balanced and fresh, hints of flowers and spice chime in as this builds to a taut, lengthy finish. Best from 2023 through 2039. 1,400 cases made, 200 cases imported."

"This wine opens with ripe and crunchy red cherry accompanied by a fragrant hint of conifer. The cherry fruit is equally crunchy on the concentrated body but attains a riper, warmer feel. This is edged with freshness and a hint of tar gives the midpalate fruit a broodingly dark aspect. The wine is a picture of toned, muscular balance."
