    January 5, 2017 - Damn this wine was great ! Beautiful complexity with noble aromas of pine sap, game, truffles and the fruit was beautiful too! Dark spices and black cherries in moist earth. Smooth structure taking on the sap/wax feeling. reminiscing the aroma ? Anyhow, pleased to support a passionate winemaker I visited, creating something quite unique in the region. Certainly amongst the best southern Rhone wines. Adopts some aspects of the Biodynamic philosophy, uses natural volcanic sulfur. 70% Grenache, and a balance of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault and local varieties Counoise, Vaccarese and Terret Noir. Aged in casks and demi-muids, concrete vats between 25-36 months. Unfined and unfiltered, fleur de liege corks. Aging potential 15-20 years. Chalky clay marl terroir and yield is 10-15 hl/ha. Vines between 30-100 years old in gobelet method. Vines come from selected cuttings through masal selection. The quest for quality here is constant and phenomenal
