The facts behind this great wine are as follows; 42% Grenache, 39% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 4% Cinsault; 51% barrel-aged and 49% aged in cask. Cropped at 20 hl//ha and to be bottled April 2012. Behind the detail, the facts speak for themselves; a superb effort! Mint, plums, lavender and black tea are all noted in deference to real complexity. The best vintage for 35 years according to M Voeux, who should have a reasonable idea, as he has been making wine here for at least twenty-five of them! Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012.
