This is also agreeably airy with spicier aromas of pepper and floral-suffused black cherry and a vague hint of the sauvage. Like the La Justice the middleweight flavors possess a refined texture as well as notably more minerality that adds a sense of lift to the dusty, serious, compact and chiseled finish where a touch of austerity slowly emerges. This is excellent for its level and a wine that should repay up to a decade of keeping.

A more elegant and airier nose reflects aromas of various red berries, spice and a floral top note. The much more refined if not especially dense flavors also possess good energy as well as very good detail on the dusty, youthfully austere and harmonious finale. Lovely and a wine that could be enjoyed young if desired.

Score: 90-92 | January 10, 2024 |

An elegant, spicy and very pretty, even perfumed, nose is comprised by notes of spiced tea, earth, red and dark currant and a very subtle application of wood. The refined, vibrant and utterly delicious middleweight flavors exude evident minerality on the compact, youthfully austere and much better-balanced finale. Lovely and built-to-age.

Score: 91-93 | January 10, 2024 | Burghound

Firm reduction and oak toast are all that can be discerned at present. More interesting are the sleek, vibrant and moderately refined middleweight flavors that also flash plenty of minerality on the tautly muscular, linear and firmly austere finale. This is very good but the word Cistercian comes to mind so patience advised.

Score: 91-93 | January 10, 2024 | Burghound

This too is elegant, airy and cool with its array of essence of red berries, spice and more obvious floral nuances. There is a bit more volume and concentration to the equally refined and intensely stony medium weight flavors that conclude in a sneaky long, moderately austere and attractively complex finale. Excellent.

Like the Les Cras, this too is firmly reduced and revealing nothing on the nose at present. The racy and more refined, if slightly less concentrated, medium-bodied flavors also brim with minerality on the balanced, long and less overtly austere finale though there is a trace. Lovely.

Score: 91-94 | January 10, 2024 | Burghound

More evident wood influence is present on the beautifully layered aromas of red and dark cherry, forest floor, spice and pretty floral nuances. The rich, moderately concentrated and palate soaking medium-bodied flavors display focused power on the firm, serious and built-to-age finale. This is excellent and well-worth a look provided you intend to cellar it for at least 5 or so years first.

Medium salmon in hue, the nose of this rosé offers rhubarb, rose water and a savory edge. It is round on the palate with a midpalate of sweet spices. Its pithy and saline finish will leave you craving another glass to be enjoyed either ocean side or by the pool till sunset. — Anna-Christina Cabrales

Not yet bottled, the 2022 Vacqueyras is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the balance Mourvèdre that's aging all in tank. Red, blue, and black fruits, as well as peppery, floral, and minty garrigue notes, all define the aromatics, and it's medium-bodied, has plenty of fruit, and fine tannins.

The 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape Crau Des Papes (60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre) comes all from pebbly soils and is brought up entirely in concrete tank. It has classic darker berry and peppery herbs as well as some subtle iron and nori notes in its medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, elegant profile. The tannins here are nicely integrated, and it has a beautiful sense of freshness as well as solid mid-palate depth.
