The wine is dense medium to full-bodied and by all accounts the richest and most concentrated of these cuvees with one exception - the 2010 Cotes du Ventoux Il Etait Une Fois. This wine (which wasn't made in 2011) was rated last year but this wine just goes from strength to strength. A blend of 80% Grenache aged in cement eggs and 20% Syrah aged in small barrels this includes grapes from their oldest Grenache parcels planted in 1936. There is also some Mourvedre in the wine which is elegant and slightly more linear than it was last year right after bottling. Incredible notes of kirsch liqueur intermixed with black fruits spring flowers raspberries dusty loamy underbrush as well as a note of forest floor are all present in this opulent full-bodied super-rich wine which is both subtle and authoritative. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. 92+ -Robert Parker
