Critical Acclaim

ST91 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Mar/Apr 2014

"Brilliant ruby. Potent red berry and floral scents are complemented by deeper notes of licorice, cola and espresso, with a stony nuance adding lift and focus. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of candied lavender. Smooth tannins add shape to the long, fruit-driven finish of this suave wine." (91 pts.)

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2014

"The 2012 Côtes du Rhône Lieu Dit Clavin is gorgeous, and gives a touch of the estate’s style for less buck than the Châteauneufs. Blackberry, graphite, licorice and violets all show here. It’s medium-bodied, fleshy and ripe, with good underlying structure. It will have over a decade of longevity." (90 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"A rounded and fleshy style, with a hefty dose of warm ganache over lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors. Lively licorice edge through the finish. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now. 100 cases imported." (89 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
