Winemaker's Notes

Deep red garnet with violet highlights, black fruits with spice and ink notes.The tannins are not only very powerful but also mellow. Smoky notes and pepper wonderfully highlight the Syrah variety on granite soils.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully aromatic and complex, blending floral notes with mineral scents, bold cassis fruit and cracked pepper. This is full-bodied and muscular on the palate, the only one of Chapoutier’s 2004s that really demands cellaring. Drink 2010–2020."
95 Points

"Ruby-red. Remarkably intense raspberry, cherry, candied violet and graphite aromas show dramatic volume and thrust. Positively liqueur-like in sweetness and density, with mouthfilling red and dark fruit flavors, molten tannins and a late hit of cured meat. The ridiculously long finish boasts remarkable depth and clarity, and a never-ending display of ripe red fruits."
95 Points

"Shows a mix of dark bramble notes and a zesty wild berry profile, with dark cocoa, tar and graphite in the background. The muscular edge on the finish is atypical for the vintage. Best from 2008 through 2017."
