Critic Reviews:
Gold - 88/100 (Gilbert & Gaillard)

'From the fine Rhône appellation of Ventoux, this is a blend of 70% Grenache with Syrah in a forward, fulsome style that lovers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape will appreciate. But there's a beautiful violet and cracked black pepper elegance on the nose too, copious black fruits, a real lift suggesting kirsch, and blue/black intensity of fruit. On the palate the wine bursts with concentrated fruit: tangy and dark plum and plum skins, blueberry and damson, definite ripeness and power, but again there is elegance in the fine but grippy tannins that add a pleasing roughening edge to all that smooth fruit. Good acidity balances and freshens, extending the finish and promising a bit of longevity for this if you can cellar for five to eight years.' Tom Cannavan (wine-pages.com)

'Raspberry and blackberry nose. Hugely ripe and quite extracted in the mouth with notes of rosemary oil and powerful dark berry fruit. A tremendous fruit intensity ...' Matt Walls (Decanter)

'The nose of this wine is buoyant and primary, suggesting juicy sun-kissed plums and black cherries. Black-fruit flavors extend onto a concentrated palate nuanced by hints of thyme, pepper and earth along with integrated tannins. ' 90/100 (Wine Enthusiast)
