From the Critics:

  • "Juicy, with a violet note up front, followed by a mix of red and black cherry and blackberry fruit, backed by tangy blood orange and anise notes on the briary finish. Drink now through 2017. 1,141 cases made. -JM" 91 points Wine Spectator

    "Deep crimson. Exceptionally sweet and relatively oaky. On the palate there is good, fairly luscious, even if relatively lightweight, fruit. A sort of baby Guigal Brune et Blonde. Drink 2014 to 2020. (JR)" 16.5+ out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages

    WINE:
    "This wine is issued from vineyards situated in Ampuis , in the places called 'Cote Bodin', 'Le Grand Taillis', and 'Fontjean'. The vineyards are 30 years old; Partial scratching, vatting during 3 weeks in open tanks. Maturing in barrels (18 to 23 months) including 50% new barrels. Bottling without filtration." -Importer

    WINERY:
    "Known as a Condrieu 'master', Francois has grown his tiny domaine from 4 to 7 hectares and still produces a miniscule amount of highly allocated bottlings. Referred to by Robert Parker as one of the 'stars' of the Northern Rhone, Francois has recently acquired a small parcel in Cote-Rotie and a few ares in St. Joseph. Formerly a chef, Francois brings his complex palette to the winery to produce wines of power and grace that age for years. Francois Villard's strategy is to allow for the most optimal ripening possible. His wines, as a result, are rich and concentrated with complex aromas of peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, and honey for the whites and leather and spice for the reds. The whites are often allowed to develop botrytis and most of the wines pass through wood ageing for an extended amount of time to prepare them for a very long life in bottle." -Importer - 91 Pts Wine Spectator
