'A pure nose exuding perfectly ripe red fruit, enveloped by black plum, violet and green peppercorn. The palate is immediately greeted with a rush of acidity, rolling in a wave of black cherry, thyme stem, violets, iris, clove and black tea. Though currently a bit wound, it should shine with impressive nuances with additional time in bottle. Undeniably irresistible.’ – Wine Enthusiast, 95/100

‘Lots of smoke, pepper and blackberries on the nose, but also ripe red berries and dried flowers that expand as it aerates. At once ripe and fleshy, but also silky and graceful. Full-bodied. Underplayed power until you get right to the finish where you feel the beautifully crafted structure. A cuvee of 60% grenache from Le Pradel and 40% syrah from La Font du Pape. 75% whole bunch. Matured in a combination of Stockinger oak foudre and clay amphora. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification.’ –James Suckling,, 94/100

‘This offers high-toned raspberry tea, bitter cherry and macerated plum overlaying a savory, smoldering core of incense, graphite, singed apple wood and smoke. Glossy and lush, with savory acidity and very fine tannins providing shape.’ – Kristen Bieler,, 93/100
