2014 ()

(casks) medium depth red robe. Smoky bacon, crushed red berries aroma, light notes of herbs on the nose. The palate bears relaxed depth of plum fruit, expresses the Grenache well, with the minted 2014 freshness as it ends. It displays good length, cut, as it closes. This has good, self-contained quality, is naturally made wine with STGT leanings: it is long and fruitful. 15°. 2,000 b. €36. From 2018. 2029-31 Oct 2015 

2013 ()

(cask/vat/barrel) medium to full robe. Attractive cherry, blueberry notes on the nose – this gives an appealing, aromatic expression. This is ripe, fragrant and full on the palate, holds plenty of matter. Its tannins are fine, ripe and firm. It shows good length on the finish. This gives early charm, but also has some ageing potential. 14.5°. From 2016. 2026-27 JL Oct 2014

2012 ()

(cask/vat/barrel) healthy dark red; blackberry, prune jam-liqueur aroma with a wee feral note – this is a polished nose, has “sheen”, a few Provence herbs hover. There are fundamental notes of red meat steak, black coffee. The palate has a well-determined start, a good ensemble of fruit, likeable ripe tannin, shows a stretch of clarity as it ends. There are some dark forces in its fruit, which is suave. The finish has a tarry grip, a little heat. There are touches of peppermint in the black fruit. promising wine, give it time, no hurry. From 2016-17. 15°. 2026-28  Oct 2013

2011

comfortably full red; smoke, blackberry, bosky aroma that has a meaty angle; there is a charry impact here from the oak. Interesting floral infusions lie in the clear tang fruit; it builds to a mineral, more graphite end, having attacked well on an enjoyable swirl of black fruits, blackberry, before the carry-mineral moments close it, and bring in sharper noted blueberry fruit. Châteauneuf with bone in its tannins, not yet truly ensemble. Oak is rather present. 15°. 2023-25  Oct 2013
