These Chapoutier wines are sometimes reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon report and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines so I will just list the wines my score and the region from which they emerge. They are of very high quality and deserve readers' attention. Hopefully my prose has convinced more than a handful of readers to try these remarkable wines from one of the most fascinating and compelling personalities in the entire wine world and one dedicated to the highest quality.

The bouquet is complex layered with notes of licorice incense fruit cake and blackberry liquor. Gobs of creamy dark fruit explode on entry supported by an undercurrent of licorice tar and ethereal violet notes. Mouth-coating glycerin creates a rich texture bolstered by beautifully integrated (if persistent) tannins and an impeccable acidity which creates a lovely sense of buoyancy. This is fully loaded promising to gain more and more complexity over the next 10-15 years. A real knockout that deserves serious attention.
