Winemaker's Notes

The 2001 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2003

This great wine comes from the best terroirs of the appellation. The traditional culture of the vineyard, in Pest since many years, can make the most of. The symphony of the thirteen varieties we get a great complexity in our wines. The main grape varieties (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault) expressed remarkably in this fabulous terroir, and are complemented by other traditional varietals (Counoise, Terret, Muscardin, Vaccarèse) The harvest is still entirely manual - and as was once-, two buckets, to sort the grapes directly to select the finest grapes, ripe and healthy, the only ones capable of giving Big Vins.

The 2006 vintage is a great vintage. The wines have great aromatic expression, many rounded tannins present but never bulky, with a nice character.

Critical Acclaim

"This has a nice brawny undertow of chestnut and grilled beef, with top layers of dark fig, licorice and coffee. Solid flesh surrounds it all, and the finish is long and well-structured. Best from 2009 through 2023. 300 cases imported. "
