    April 14, 2021 - Lovely aroma and pretty ruby red color. Need to let the tannins integrate more so will save the rest a few years. 2nd day the wine opened up with a blast of cherries on the palate. Very nice. Decant and leave for next day if drinking now.

    March 28, 2021 - Continue to be impressed with wine after wine from this producer. Beautiful Grenache driven effort here. Delicate without being shy.

    January 8, 2021 - Had this against Les Hautes Garrigues-16 again. And a year ago this won. This time it was a draw. Both are superelegant. This i a tad lighter, but equally delicious. Still 95. I think this wine is custom built to match my taste buds...

    December 13, 2020 - This deep ruby blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre unleashes an impressive bouquet immediately upon popping the cork. Raspberry, Montmorency cherry, licorice, rose petal, exotic spice and Provençal herb aromas jump from the glass and are followed by comparable flavors on the full-bodied, fresh palate. Softly oaked, seamlessly alcoholic (14.5%) and with plentiful rustic tannins, it stays plump on the middle palate and closes with a very long, albeit grippy finish. As delicious as this is now, a bit of cellar time will help to soften the tannins and turn this gem into something even more enjoyable. Drink 2023-2030.
