Critic Review

17.5/20 Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com "Full bottle 1,319 g. Certified Ecocert organic. 100% Grenache Gris. Old vines planted in 1950 and 1971, grown on calcareous clay at 180 m Spontaneous fermentation without sulphites in concrete egg tank and 500-litre barrels. Aged on full lees for nine months. It's a stunning wine. Riesling-like, Grosses Gewächs style, in its aciculate power and structural precision. The acidity is piercing and yet the wine carries the savoury richness and broad canvas of Grenache Gris like a flag flying high. It's triumphant, dramatic, takes a slice of your heart. Grapefruit and rock-pool brine, smoky quince and the glitter of pyrite dust. A wine with the impact of the crash of wave against a white-stone cliff, stinging salt and the taste of sand and old-as-time ammonites gouged out of chalk. But the finish is soft as a whisper, fine as cashmere, silver-threaded. Quite remarkable. A wine to take very seriously. (TC) 13.5% "

"Gritty, granular, savoury. The sunflower seeds and meadow hay on the nose fold into pear puree and gem squash and roasted marrow on the palate – gentle, comforting, subtle with the warm, rounded, wholesome embrace of roasted white and green squash, a sprinkle of spice, a drizzle of olive oil. But there is also a pickled-jalapeño bite that builds into a salty tang-tempered clamp on the finish." (TC) 17/20 Jancis Robinson, May 2021, Grenache Gris 2018


"Bright straw yellow colour with silvery nuances, the nose offers a beautiful aromatic intensity around elegant fruity notes, white fruits, citrus peel, fresh floral touches and a slightly smoky mineral hint. The mouth is pleasant and pure, marked by a superb tension which brings freshness, saline touches and ample flavours brought by a magnificent aging on lees which prolong the persistence with harmony and elegance. Altogether a beautifully well-balanced wine leaving you with a compelling sensation of freshness." Dominique Laporte, Meilleur Sommelier de France, Meilleur Ouvrier de France Sommelier.
