Description

A right-bank domaine for notable, use of the Mourvèdre and the Viognier. These are very good wines indeed, but are something of an acquired taste due to being rather rigid and strict when young. The reds age extremely well, and need time to loosen their early tannins. As far back as the 1990s, Robert Parker described this as 'one of the best estates in the entire Rhone Valley' and suggests the wines could be regarded as 'mini-Beaucastel and/or Bandol', wines which cost two or three times as much. The emphasis on Syrah and Mourvedre obviously has something to do with this but the purity of the fruit and concentration of the wines which drink young but age well over several years.
