This medium bodied aromatic wine has integrated notes of bilberry, black cherry, leather, cedar and coconut. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 to 60 min) and the finish is long. This wine is good to drink now or will nicely age for the next five plus years. No wonder why it received a silver medal at Concours Mondial Bruxelles in 2009. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - highly recommended buy. Tasted Aug/10.

It's only wine but I like it

Very dry, with intense notes of plums and slightly tart blackberries, and notes of herbs and pepper. Very typical of the Roussillon region and very well made....a food wine for sure. I get the impression that the wine still had more to give, so a year or two in bottle will bring out even more. Very nicely priced at about $15.
