Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A step up over the La Source cuvee, the 2013 L’Argile is 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and then 5% each of Carignan and Cinsault, all of which was aged two years in concrete tanks. It has a sappy, perfumed bouquet of white pepper, rose petals, kirsch, raspberries and pine that gives way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless profile on the palate. I love its tannin quality, and it has fabulous length on the finish as well. This beauty will be better in 2-3 years and have 15 years of overall longevity."

Wine Spectator:

"Features a well-integrated roasted alder frame around a core of lightly mulled plum and black cherry fruit, giving way to tobacco and black tea details on the focused finish. Drink now through 2017. 285 cases imported." October 2016
