Always based on Grenache yet with 10-15% Cinsault, this full-bodied, deep, opulent Châteauneuf Du Pape tastes like the essence of Provence, is incredibly complex, has sweet tannins, and despite all its richness and depth, stays pure, fresh, and light on its feet. It’s one of the finest vintages of this cuvée to date! collapse

Ripe red berry, rose oil, Asian spice and incense scents, along with a smoky mineral nuance that builds slowly with air. Sappy, energetic and pure, offering palate-caressing raspberry preserve, cherry pie and floral pastille flavors that show a suave blend of depth and energy. Displays sharp delineation and floral lift on the impressively long, subtly tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of candied red berries and spicecake. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

On the palate you find sweet, peppery red fruits, spice and freshness. Medium-bodied with lift and energy, the wine leaves you with a long blast of sweet, juicy peppery red fruits in the finish. The wine was produced from a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault.

Full-bodied, supple and long on the finish, it's a triumph of elegance in a vintage that leans more toward tannic force.- JC collapse

Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2035. 1,500 cases made, 300 cases imported. — JM collapse

A very ripe cuvée that has rich aromas of red-berry compote and red-plum flavors, framed in a shell of glossy, ripe tannin. Drink over the next six years.
