Lively strawberry and raspberry fruit almost vibrates with dramatic tension, picking up hints of lavender and thyme on the long finish. This is medium to full-bodied, but seems almost airy-light in feel, framed by silky tannins. Biodynamic and aged in amphora, it has the substance to back up the buzzwords. - Joe Czerwinski

The wine is elegant, cherry filled and a pleasure to drink. The wine was made from 100% old vine Grenache from the La Crau lieu-dit and was aged in terra cotta, Amphora jars.

An understated style, but very precise. Best from 2020 through 2035. 176 cases made, 24 cases imported. — JM

Black cherries, strawberries, licorice, and earthy floral notes all dominate the bouquet of this solid effort. With medium to full body, considerable elegance, and top-notch purity, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for a decade.
