93pts James Suckling
80% grenache and 20% syrah, from a single southwest-facing site. A spicy nose with darker cherry and plum fruits. The palate has these darker fruits with redder notes, too. Terrific finesse and length. Silky, long maceration style. Dark chocolate and orange rind finish.
A serious, profound bouquet with a hint of licorice. The palate reveals the spices of this new terroir, interwoven with herby garrigue flavors. Attractive structure, taut, elegant, compelling – you sense the freshness of the place. A true character.
