It reveals a deep purple color as well as heavenly notes of blackberry and currant fruits intermixed with loads of cured meats, spice box, Asian spices, and a distinct loamy soil and minerality. Always more structured and powerful than the Reserve Auguste Favier release (no doubt due to the Mourvèdre component), it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, building yet polished tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. Pure perfection in a glass, it’s as good as wine gets. Give bottles 2-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades. Hats off to winemaker Isabelle Ferrando for yet another thrilling wine! collapse

Luscious, peppery, fresh, sweet ripe dark, pure red berries are all over the place. The wine is juicy, fresh and intense. You find length, purity and energy.

You find length, purity and energy. The black raspberries and peppery cherries just keep on going in the end note. The wine was made blending 60% old vine Grenache with 40% Mourvedre. This stunner is one of the wines of the vintage!

A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, it offers up seductive notes of dried spices and cola, plus plenty of plummy fruit. It's lush and long on the finish, folding in hints of clove, allspice and star anise. Nearly approachable now, it should cellar well through 2035.- JC collapse

Explosive, smoke- and mineral-accented black raspberry, cherry cola, exotic spice and candied lavender aromas show outstanding delineation and pick up a succulent herb nuance with air. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated red and dark berry preserve, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors and hints of star anise and musky rhubarb. The strikingly long, energetic finish shows strong minerally cut, an echo of sappy blue fruit and molten tannins that sneak in late. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

Packed with dark plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors and backed by lively bramble, anise and fruitcake notes, this cruises through the grippy, tar-edged finish.

Shows lots of stuffing, so cellar for maximum effect. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2038. 1,000 cases made, 200 cases imported. — JM collapse
