2015 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

With a nose that starts with charcoal, smoke, stone, pepper and red fruits. From there, when you move to palate, the wine is medium bodied, round, soft and polished, finishing with ripe, juicy cherries and thyme in the finish. You can drink this young, as well as age it for further development.

2015 Les Halos de Jupiter Adrastee  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

From 100% old vine Grenache that comes from vines in the clay soils planted in the La Crau lieu-dit that are over 100 years of age. With all the density of fruit and flavor, this is concentrated and long, that is also providing you with a real sensation of minerality from the moment you meet the juicy, kirsch nose. On the palate the wine is rich, fat, and juicy, with sweet, pure, red fruits, polished tannins and an opulent personality.

2014 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Medium bodied, fresh, round, polished, stylish Chateauneuf du Pape that is filled with ripe, juicy, sweet, cherries, kirsch and licorice in the rich finish. Even though this is already drinking well, you can easily keep this for several years. The wine was made from a blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre. A top wine for the vintage from Philippe Cambie.

2014 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Gigondas) 90

Garrigue, pepper and black raspberry aromatics pop with little effort. Medium/full bodied, with ample levels of dark, red fruits and freshness coupled with forward character are what you are going to find here. The wine was produced using a blend of 88% Grenache and 12% Mourvedre.

2014 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Vacqueyras) 89

Really peppery, with a bright freshness to the fruits and a strong herbal component, time should hopefully add more softness to the wine. The wine was whole cluster fermented, so it will take a bit of time to get a better idea on its true nature. But if you are a lover of this style, this blend of 85% Grenache and 15% old vine Syrah is worth looking into.

Forward, early drinking, soft textured and fresh, with sweet, juicy kirsch at its core, this wine is blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah planted in the far north of the Southern Rhone valley. The wine is clean, fresh and ready to go. This is what well priced, wines of pleasure are all about.

2012 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Forward, medium bodied, with a core of sweet, kirsch and black raspberries, garrigue, pepper and thyme. This is already charming to drink and should improve with more time in the bottle, if you prefer more secondary development.

This super wine is made from close to 100% Grenache from vines that are more than 100 years of age planted in the La Crau lieu-dit. Rich, fat, juicy, sweet, plus and concentrated, there is a great sense of purity in the opulent ripe, red fruits that really makes an impression.

2009 Les Halos de Jupiter Adrastee  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

This is already rocking, with its lush, sweet, supple, kirsch, thyme, spice and jam characteristics. Round, ripe, and ready, with a blast of fresh, spicy cherries and black raspberries in the finish, this is a lot of wine for under $50. The wine is made in a partnership between Philippe Cambie and Michel Gassier.

2007 Les Halos de Jupiter  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Drinking perfectly, the debut vintage for this winery pops with fresh, sweet, ripe, spicy kirsch, pepper, thyme and provencal herbs. Round, sweet, ripe and loaded with fresh, black raspberries, jam and a melange of cherries in the supple textured finish, this is good to go.
