'From a small colline above the village, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone Villages la Garrigue is 95% Grenache and just 5% Syrah. It's full-bodied and expansive yet light on its feet, with silky tannins easily woven in and among hints of raspberries, red cherries, orange zest and spice. There's a real sense of delicacy and finesse to this wine, which is totally different from the others produced by the estate.' – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 91-93/100 (Aug 2019)

'Very intense crimson hue appearance. Nose is complex and fine, with floral like aromas (jasmine, violet) at first, followed by notes of garrigue scrubland, liquorice and cherry. Clean and fruity on entry to the palate with notes of wild berries and grenadine, as well as flavours of thyme and an exotic touch of pomegranate. These are accompanied by silky tannins adding a hazelnut touch which creates nice length of the palate. Shows great elegance and great finesse.' – Winemaker
