Spicy, peppery, black raspberries, flowers, smoky herbs, and kirsch notes are all over the aromatics.

The wine is produced from 100% old vine Grenache from vines up to 120 years of age. Drink from 2024-2037.

One of the darker wines of the vintage, its blend of 70% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah works well this year. Smoke, flowers, spice, meat, espresso, incense, and dark red fruits in the nose get even better on the palate. The wine is lush, with a nice depth of flavor, richness, elegance, length, freshness, and minerality in the finish. Drink from 2025 - 2037.

Flowers, red and black cherries, kirsch and plums are all over the place here. On the palate the wine is medium/full-bodied, earthy and fresh. There is lift, depth of flavor and a strong sensation of black pepper, crushed rocks, stones and sweet, lively red fruits with a touch of chocolate in the finish. From vines close to 120 years of age, the old-vine intensity defines the wine. Drink from 2024-2040.

Deep, rich, dark and packed with notes of roses, kirsch, cherries, spice and thyme, this is stunning from start to finish. While the wine is intense, concentrated and lusty with its 15% ABV, there is no sense of heat as all that gorgeous, fresh, sweet, ripe, pure fruit grabs your nose and palate from the start and stays with you all the way through to its seamless finish. The wine is produced from mostly old vine Grenache vines close to 120 years of age and with the 2019, the old-vine intensity shines through here, loud and clear. Drink from 2024 - 2040

Deep, dark, meaty, spicy and dense, the wine is intensely concentrated, lush, rich and polished. A bit oaky at the outset, that should fade with age as all the layers of ripe, earthy, spicy, peppery, dark red fruits emerge. The wine is full-bodied, powerful and impressive, but it needs time for the oak to integrate. Give it 6-8 years in the cellar and this could be even better. With its blend of 70% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah, this should age quite nicely. Drink from 2025 - 2040

Sold as a Vin de France because the grapes come from separate appellations, Chateauneuf du Pape and Lirac, this early drinking, personality-driven charmer offers up a blast of richly-textured black cherries, plums and herbs as soon as the wine hits your glass. Round and fruity with good weight and texture, this is already just great to drink.
