What the Critics say
Bright violet. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri, licorice and white pepper scents show impressive clarity and vivacity. Sappy, seamless and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of candied lavender. Finishes on a bright mineral note, displaying excellent focus, subtle tannins and emphatic, floral-driven tenacity. This is quite an elegant example of the vintage.
Formerly labelled as Domaine de la Roquette.
A blend of 70-year-old grenache (90%) from Piedlong Plateauis in the heart of the Châteauneuf-duPape AOC area and the highest elevation in the appellation (128m) and a touch of 50-year-old mourvèdre (10%) from the Pignan lieu-dit, east of Piedlong.
