Winemaker's Notes

This cuvee is a true homage to Philippe Cambie's passion for Grenache, Chateauneuf's most emblematic varietal. Very elegant and harmonious, this wine displays a perfect balance between power and finesse.

Critical Acclaim

"This red is densely packed and sports a good old-school edge, offering aromatic bittersweet cocoa, chestnut and roasted mesquite notes that give way to pure blackberry and cassis fruit, gliding effortlessly through the silky finish. A hedonistic wine with serious definition."
93 Points

"Vivid ruby. High-pitched, spicy aromas of redcurrant, cherry, garrigue and minerals. Fine-grained and precise, offering plenty of fruit without jamminess. This energetic wine finishes with perfumed flavors of redcurrant, bitter cherry and a sneaky herbal nuance. These grapes (90% grenache) come from vines that are reportedly more than 100 years old, from a vineyard in the north-west sector of the appellation.
Range: 90-92 "
