The wine was completely destemmed and brought up all in concrete tanks. This rocking effort is still a baby in terms of evolution but still gives up a huge bouquet of kirsch, strawberries Asian spices, candle wax, white flowers, and graphite. Deep, rich, and powerful, yet with the hallmark elegance of the estate, it has fine tannin, an awesome mid-palate, incredible purity and a huge finish. It's another great, great vintage for this cuvée that readers shouldn't miss.

Powerful raspberry liqueur, cherry pie, incense, potpourri and spicecake aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up a vibrant mineral nuance with aeration. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated but shockingly lithe raspberry, cherry liqueur, five-spice powder and lavender pastille flavors given lift and spine by a jolt of juicy acidity. Blends richness and delicacy with a deft hand and finishes wonderfully long and precise, with pliant tannins adding shape and gentle grip. Is this the wine of the vintage? It's definitely on the (very) short list.- JR

Everything about this wine shows purity, delicacy and charm. The kirsch is perfectly ripe, sweet, fresh and hits all the right spits. There is nothing out of place. This should age gracefully for at least 2 decades or longer. The wine is made from 100% old vine Grenache.

It offers the essence of ripe Grenache in its notes of ripe plums, purple raspberries and stone fruit, then layers on savory-spicy-meaty complexity. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and slightly warm on the finish (it reached at least 16% alcohol), it should provide thrilling drinking over the next decade. - JC

Sweet strawberry and raspberry on the palate teams up with bright acidity that helps to counter the sweet fruits. It's full but not heavy, with remarkable energy, and ample tannins which give texture, length and support to the ebullient fruits. A long finish. Certified organic.
