92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report

From the Critics:

  • "A rock solid '08 and a wine that will compete with the best of the vintage, the 2008 Saint Jean du Barroux Cotes du Ventoux l'Argile is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Carignan, and 5% Cinsault, fermented with close to one-third stem inclusion, that was aged all in concrete and tank. It exhibits an elegant, finesse driven style with small red berries, flowers, white pepper, and sappy garrigue-like characteristics flowing to a medium-bodied, seamless palate that has integrated acidity, very fine tannin, and loads of minerality on the finish. Approachable and ready to go, this will continue to shine for another 4-6 years or so." (10/12) - 92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
  • "Mature now, leading off with incense and black tea notes, with a still-fleshy core of blackberry and black cherry fruit. Features a graphite edge on the finish. Drink now. -JM" (2013) - 90 Pts Wine Spectator
