"Sustained garnet appearance. Spicy and minty-red nose. Aromas of black fruits, fresh blackberry, and plum. Powerful mouth. Depth with lots of volume on the palate. Balanced with a finish on notes of prunes and cocoa." —winemaker
"Deep garnet red, with purple highlights. The bouquet mingles black fruits (blueberry, blackberry), spices and perfectly integrated wood. The palate is rich, round and fresh. Impressive and yet fine tannins, very promising. A long finish with vanilla aroma." —winemaker Blend: 5% Cabernet Franc, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot
"With its magnificent ruby, crimson-tinged appearance, this Cru Bourgeois wine reveals aromas of macerated fruits with a hint of mint, lifted by roasted notes. Generous and rich on the palate, with relatively firm tannins that will soften over time. A highly characterful Cru Bourgeois wine which leaves a lasting impression of great elegance." —winemaker

"Brilliant ruby-red. Fresh and energetic on the nose, displaying intense red fruit preserve and floral scents and a suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a refreshingly bitter blood orange nuance. Fine grained tannins build slowly through a long, sappy finish that leaves behind a suave lavender note." —winemaker
"Striking a seemingly perfect balance between plushness and precision, the vibrantly crimson colored 2017 perfumes with cherry cola and fresh flowers while buttressed with brambly garrigue notes and characteristic flinty minerality. Straightforward and compact, the wine opens with bright raspberry and rhubarb and then reveals more nuanced hints of confectioners chocolate, schist, and dried herbs. Ever-present, is a satisfying vein of acidity that perfectly supports the wine's complexity." —winemaker
"Superb deep color. The complex nose offers notes of ripe fruit, spices and flowers. Full bodied and balanced, the palate is very delicate with magnificent aromas of cherries, plums and licorice and a long finish." —winemaker
"The color is intense, deep and steady. The nose shows maturity with aromas of black fruits and warm spices. We find the soils of origin are revealed with floral notes (violet) which are lightly smoky. We can find the same aromatic notes on the Northern Côtes du-Rhône soils, which are the birthplace of the Syrah. The attack is both supple and powerful. Tannins are at the same time powerful and tight. The finale is fresh without any heaviness." —winemaker
Wine Anthology Team Review-Made up of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan this wine comes from one of the top estates in the Rhone valley. Perfectly balanced, elegant and full of flavor from start to finish this bottle would be an ideal companion with most Lamb dishes. Take this with you to dinner and thank me later. Cheers!
