The use of oak is adept, and really helps to accentuate the ripe, bright fruits, plum, damson, raspberry juice. It has a good length of flavour and is a real joy. Made with biodynamically-grown Grenache (66%), Syrah (12%) and Mourvèdre (12%), the rest being made up of Clairette Rose, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Terret Noir, Picardan, Picpoul Blanc, Muscardin, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Roussanne, Picpoul Gris, Counoise and Clairette! They are grown across a variety of soil types in the lieux-dits Beau Renard, Cabrières and Coteau de l'Ange, vinified mostly in tronconic wooden vats, then aged in oak barrels of various sizes and ages, including 10% new oak.

The terrific graphite underpinning keeps everything moving in unison through the finish, with focus and definition. Best from 2023 through 2038. — J.M.

Not far off the style of the classic cuvée, only deeper and richer, it has a smoking bouquet of ripe redcurrants, smoked blueberries, roasted garrigue, ground pepper, and scorched earth. Beautifully concentrated, medium to full-bodied, with building tannins and a great finish, this is one seriously good 2018. It’s worth giving it 2-3 years of bottle age then enjoying over the following 15 years or more.

That said, it's not overdone, with plenty of cola, plum and spice notes coming through on the full-bodied palate. Velvety and supple in the mouth, this seductive offering should drink well for a decade.- JC

The wine was made from a Grenache dominated blend that also utilizes old vine Mourvedre, Syrah and all the other allowable grape varieties in the appellation.
