"Incredibly complex aromas of subtle white stones, slate, light berries and peach character plus a hint of cream. Full-bodied yet so light and agile with a focused and dense center palate. Incredibly energetic. As always, one of the very best rosés in the world. Drink now."
94 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Light, glistening orange. An exotically perfumed, highly expressive bouquet evokes ripe red berries, peach nectar, vanilla and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral quality builds in the glass. Sappy, seamless and expansive on the palate, offering intense raspberry, nectarine, fig and blood orange flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Clings impressively on the pit-fruit-driven finish, leaving toasty lees, vanilla and floral notes behind. This extremely impressive wine was fermented and aged for 10 months in new and used demi-muids."
93 Wine Enthusiast
"This is a rich, impressive wine, with spicy flavors from wood aging that are well integrated with the ripe berry fruits. Together, they give intensity, sophistication and power, making this a perfect candidate to enjoy alongside food. Drink now, although the wine should age well through 2022. -RV"
93 Wine Spectator
"Elegant and enticing, with harmonious layers of mango, poached peach and ripe pineapple notes that are well-spiced and matched with rose water and brioche accents. A well-crafted, distinct rosé. Grenache and Rolle. Drink now through 2021. 1,500 cases made, 600 cases imported. — GS"
