J. Livingstone-Learmonth: 4,5 / 6 Sterne
"Yellow robe; citrus, spiced, lively nose, aniseed and liquid honey, plenty on offer, dried white fruits, a note of petrol, aniseed also. It’s a good mix of South and North – depth and freshness. The palate offers rolling, savoury gras, comfortable depth, has freedom – it doesn’t hold a very hot vintage shape, with good spine through it. 2018 is a very good vintage for the whites here. This is stylish and will be great around 8-10 years’ old. It carries aniseed in the flavour, ends on grapefruit, citrus notes, will prosper. “Great with scallops”, V Avril. Less Bourboulenc than normal - very hit by mildew. 5,350 b only, half or less than usual. 2045-47."

Zitat J. Livingstone-Learmonth: "Gold standard estate, joy to taste only one red, one white, so good blending is crucial. The yields are always very low – not much more than 20 hl/ha, which serves to concentrate the red wine, and there is an above average emphasis on the Mourvèdre, all planted in clay soils. The blend is now usually 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes, having been 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes into the early 2010s. The 2014 red was utterly charming, a real en finesse ****(*) beauty, while the 2015 is logically a bolder, more demanding ***** wine, requiring patience. The ***** 2016 red is deep and long, a vintage that will age extremely well. The whites drink well in their first couple of years, then back off, close down, and emerge as more complex, stimulating wines around seven years' old; they live well and deserve a top table accompaniment."
