Press and Awards

La Revue Du Vin De France. « On ne présente plus cette référence locale. Il y a du monde dans le verre (….) cette jolie bouteille de syrah mérite d’être débouchée. »
Le Guide Hachette « A un tel prix, c’est incroyable de trouver des concentrations d’un tel niveau. Cette syrah s’exprime sur les épices avec un côté fumé. Des notes de chanvre indien tamisent la bouche et lui donnent sa singularité. Très belle cuvée. »
Jancis Robinson - 17/20. "Vincent Chansault (the winemaker) is a big fan of the Rhône. Very good structure. Cool and sleek and very polished. Very, very fresh. Very un-Languedoc!”

Tasting notes

Very deep colour, opaque. Black pepper, liquorice and spice. A full bodied wine, with layers of black fruits, pepper and moderate tannins. A fresh, clean, concentrated style more akin to the cooler examples from Northern Rhone.
