Winemaker's Notes

#50 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

70% Grenache 30% Syrah. This powerful and generous wine symbolizes the success of the Flaugergues vineyard restructuring. The "Cuvée Sommelière" is all in concentration and length. Vinified with the utmost care and perfectly balanced, wine-lovers will for many years enjoy the opulence of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"A powerful, well-structured red, with a strong minerally cast to the red berry and kirschlike flavors. Very focused, with intense milk chocolate and mocha notes driving the fresh finish. Drink now through 2015."
