Score - 90-92. (Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar, Jan. 2013) "Inky purple. Ripe black and blue fruits on the nose, with complicating licorice, black tea and lavender qualities. At once rich and energetic, offering lush blueberry and candied licorice flavors perked up by a touch of white pepper. Closes with excellent clarity and lift, leaving dark fruit compote notes behind.

Seems quite light and simple in this vintage. Little structure or complexity. More like a decent Cote du Rhone than a Vacqueyras. Would have scored it even lower but the wine showed much better with food. Aug 2015.
