A wine with a beautiful dark color, with purple reflections. On the nose, we are seduced by the intensity and the purity of the fruit, by the discrete perception of the aromas coming from the ageing in barrels, by the touch of velvet that bring so much complexity. On the palate, the charm continue to operate. The wine is perfectly balanced, fleshy, round, structured, but still dominated by this finesse and precision that makes it accessible. The finish is long with hints of sweetness, fruit paste, and sweet spices.

Wine AdvocateTasted out of bottle and a blend of 47% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre and the balance Cinsault, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape spent 12 months in mostly barrels, one-third being new. Showing the up-front and perfumed style of the vintage, with loads of spice, licorice, cedar and savory berry fruit, this medium-bodied, supple effort has excellent balance, good freshness and fine tannin. It should drink nicely through 2021. Drink now-2021.
