95 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Made from 55+ year old vines.

35% Grenache (mid-1960s), 33-35% Syrah, 30-33% Mourvèdre, destemmed, 2-3 week vinification, pumping overs only, the best selection of the Lirac red wines, done in the cellars, but 70% of the time comes from the same vineyard plots, Syrah-Mourvèdre aged 20% new, 40% each 1-2 year oak casks, Grenache vat raised 18 months, unfined, filtered, organic wine.

"Wonderfully ripe and impressively complex, the bouquet shows dark fruit
intensity with cake spice, cocoa, roasted nut and smoked game nuances. It's concentrated and weighty on the palate, displaying multi-layered mouthfeel backed by fine-grained tannins, finishing superbly long and sumptuous."
