92/100 – Bob Campbell MW (2019 vintage)
Tasting Notes: The 2020 vintage offers beautiful notes of black fruits, garrigue and spices. The mouth is greedy, with a tannic texture present but very fine. The opulent, round finish is undoubtedly charming. 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre. Pair with leg of suckling lamb with thyme flower, ratatouille, Provençal tomatoes, lamb tagine with prunes.
Winemaking: The grapes are destemmed and vinified in concrete vats. The vatting lasts a fortnight with gentle extractions. Aging takes place in vats to keep aromatic purity.
Region: Rhône AOC, France
