#38 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Deep garnet red, with aromas of black cherry. This wine is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage soils of the Roussillon area.
Pair with a nice cut of beef or Mediterranean food.
"These Chapoutier wines are sometimes reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon report and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines, so I will just list the wines, my score, and the region from which they emerge. They are of very high quality and deserve readers’ attention. Hopefully my prose has convinced more than a handful of readers to try these remarkable wines from one of the most fascinating and compelling personalities in the entire wine world, and one dedicated to the highest quality.
The Wine Advocate
"This lithe, powerful red offers concentrated spiced cherry, plum tart and blackberry flavors that feature plenty of
spicy notes. A dark chocolate accent lingers on the firm, moderately tannic finish. Best from 2014 through 2018."
