91 pts, WE: Aromas of kirsch and violet petals introduce this fruity blend of Grenache (70%), Syrah (20%) and Mourvèdre (10%). It's a lusciously textured, voluminous sip packed with concentrated flavors of raspberry coulis and strawberry leather, but nuanced by subtleties of smoke and garrigue too. Delightful now, the wine should drink well through 2026. 93 pts, TP: From lauded terroir on the northern border of Châteauneuf du Pape, 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre grapes are grown on rocky “galets” covered red clay soil. Notes of bittersweet chocolate, candied yams, garrigue, and white-peppered cherry denote a layered, ultra-confident red. A mineral depth within and a bright acidity accents sassafras and salted charcuterie. Well-developed and thrilling."
