2015***

(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

2014***

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
