‘Lots of smoky herbs, black fruits, gravelly earth, and chocolate notes emerge from the 2019 Côtes Du Roussillon Villages Latour De France Occultum Lapidem, a rich, medium to full-bodied Roussillon with loads of character. Showing more violet and floral notes with time in the glass, it has an almost Saint-Joseph-like character that might just surprise in a blind tasting. Another beautiful vintage for this cuvée, it shines for its purity as well as its elegance.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 92-94/100

‘Dark plums, blackberries, roasted meat, black pepper and hints of dried herbs and black olives. Medium body with firm tannins. It remains fresh at the center with lots of character here with the syrah kicking in mid-palate with an array of wild berries and spices. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.’ – James Suckling,, 93/100

‘Great dark garnet-red. The first nose is quite closed with a dominant of graphitic, leather, and then intense aromas of pepper, black fruits and scrubs. The attack is rich, dense. Then the wine is fleshy and solar. The final is sappy served by delicate tannins and a great freshness.’ – Winemaker
