wine enthusiast 91 pts"Whiffs of fresh, green herb and pepper lend vitality to pristine black plum and cherry flavors in this wine. It's luscious and silken but anchored by crisp acidity and a firm mineral undertow. The finish is moderately long, extended by fine-grained, persistent tannins. - Anna LEE C. IIJIMA"

vinous logo"Brilliant violet. Blackberry, boysenberry, violet, olive and a hint of cracked pepper on the fragrant nose. Clean and racy in style, offering gently sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors and a subtle mineral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Silky tannins lend shape to a spicy, nicely persistent finish, which leaves behind repeating floral and spice notes. From the tiny section of the appellation that lies just south of Saint-Péray. - Josh Raynolds"
