"A blend of 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 15% Carignan from near Maury, the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages le Sabina saw only concrete prior to bottling. It features attractive aromas of crushed stone and ripe black cherries on the nose and is full-bodied and concentrated in the mouth, with those bold flavors underscored by fine-grained tannins, a strong schistous structure and tremendous length. This is a real beauty."

"La Sauvageonne is a mix of individual lots of syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and carignan growing among the basalt, schist and red soils known as ‘ruffes’ in the highly acclaimed sub-appellation of Terrasses du Larzac. The appellation is located in the northern reaches of the Hérault département, a region known for its significant temperature amplitude and its distance from the Mediterranean sea and proximity of the Causse limestone ridges, all of which cool down the hot summer nights. The nose is intense, reflecting the black fruit base and the strong garrigue that fills the air in the vineyards. The attack is youthful, but the tannins sweet. Look for licorice, orange peel, black plum, black raspberry, and meaty flavours that persist from front to back. Demeter certified biodynamic and capable of ageing a decade with no problem."

"The black cherry reduction and raspberry tart flavors are nicely polished, with black tea, herb and spice undertones leading to a long, supple finish that offers bitter chocolate and mineral details. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan."
