2020: James Suckling 92 :
“A juicy and velvety blend of carignan and mourvedre with lots of fruits on the nose, such as frozen
raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants and some baking spices. Medium-bodied with fine tannins. Fruity and delicious with some spices in the finish. From organically grown grapes.”
2020: Jancis Robinson 16/20:
“Smells of liquorice, cherry sherbet and newly-poured wet cement. Velcro-sticky tannins and raw
black fruit. Plenty of character and there is plenty of fruit but it’s pretty rustic.” (TC)
2020: The Tasting Panel 92 points:
“High-profile acidity lifts notes of tart cherry and rhubarb. This zesty blend of Carignan and
Mourvèdre exhibits notes of candied red apple and garrigue for texture and intrigue.”
