Dense, concentrated and fairly tannic but with good freshness and great vibrancy of fruit. This has all it needs to age; it promises to be longer lived than most 2018s. The alcohol is the only thing holding it back from very long ageing - will poke out in time. A very good, classic, fresh clean style, not overly polished, but it has more energy than most in this vintage. Biodynamically-grown Grenache (66%), Syrah (15%) and Mourvèdre (10%), the rest being made up of Clairette Rose, Cinsault, Grenache Gris, Terret Noir, Picardan, Picpoul Blanc, Muscardin, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Roussanne, Picpoul Gris, Counoise and Clairette! They are grown on soils that are roughly one third each galets roulés, sand and chalk, and vinified mostly in stainless steel and tronconic wooden vats, then aged in oak barrels of various sizes and ages, including 5% new oak. (Drink between 2021-2036)

Shows solid grip and nice energy for cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2035. — J.M.

It's a dense, concentrated and somewhat sturdy wine, full-bodied and muscular yet svelte, with blackberry and chocolate notes emerging on the long, silky-textured finish. Solidly built and nicely balanced, it should drink well for at least a decade.- JC

With solid mid-palate depth and moderate tannins, it’s already approachable, yet this wine will certainly have 10-15 years of prime drinking ahead of it. It’s a terrific, classic cuvée that I would be happy to have in the cellar.

Soft textured, medium-bodied, elegant and just a pleasure to imbibe, this will be delicious on release. While dominated by Grenache, the wine includes various percentages of most if not all of the AOC allowable grapes.
