(fibre glass vat, 2005 Grenache) attractive purple-black robe. Cosy, open fruit and pepper on the nose. Good, direct fruit on the palate with snappy tannins. Has a good pure approach, good length. Sound and promising wine. 2024-25  May 2016


shiny, quite dark red colour. The nose is peppery, expressive, has good life in it, and attractive black cherry fruit, herbes de Provence. The palate runs directly with pepper/powder influences. This holds correct juice, has good cut, nice truth, is spare in parts. It drinks cleanly, is a toothsome wine, suited to grills. There is late glow here. It can soften the finish by mid-2017. “It has closed these last weeks,” Mikaël Boutin. 13.5°. 10,000 b. 60% Gren, 10% Syr, 10% Mourv, 10% Cins, 10% Cari. €5.45. 2021-22 May 2016

2013 ***(*)

plum red robe. Has a sparky, clear-cut air, right away; black pepper hovers over raspberry fruit that is nicely stylish on the inside, has mixed herbs also. It is becoming stylish overall. This is tight-knit wine, holds a quiet concentration of juice; it expresses herbs, and its place well, is STGT wine with a good and direct link to the terroir. It has integrity, is pure and expressive. Menthol and licorice show on the finish. From mid-2017. 13.5°. 2022-23 May 2016 Previously Apr 2015 **(*) medium depth red robe; smoky, red-fruited nose with a hint of herbes de Provence. The palate is loose, offers red fruit with an ignited, grainy style A bit on the light, hollow side. It struggles to convince. It is grainy on the finish, with a small, brief spot of richness. 13.5°. 9,000 b. €5.45 export. To 2018  Apr 2015
