In the press
Gold - IWSC 2019 "Inky opaque core, shading to purple red. Wonderfully intense nose fragranced with jammy raspberry, cassis, flowers, earth, peppery spice and smoke. The fruit demands attention and almost hides the firmly excellent structure behind. The balance is impeccable, grippy, tense and joyously fruity. The finish is long, effortlessly charming, seductive and elegant." (2017 vintage)
Jancis Robinson wine of the week - "A lip-smacking, full-bodied red from high country in the Languedoc. " (2016 vintage)
