 « Tasted as a sample, this blend presents a powerful and tasty mouth, with high quality tannins. The potential is there and the score could progress once the wine has finished maturing. We are confident. » 17/20

La Revue des Vins de France, Juin 2013

« Velvety and smoky mouth, tasty and firm, with a good length. Slightly dry final. A great success. »

 « Very tasty red, with sophisticated and complex tannins, very dense for the vintage. » 16/20

Rosemary Georges, Octobre 2012

« Bottled on 9th August. And will be given three months élevage in bottle before he begins to sell it in October. So 60% Grenache, 20% each of Carignan and Syrah. And when does he blend ?  That depends. This time he fermented a vat of Syrah and Grenache together; it helps stabilise the colour of the Grenache. And the wine spends nine to ten months in 500 or 600 litre demi-muids, with no racking and fining, and just a light filter. Very perfumed nose; liqueur cherries, so very Grenache. Some peppery notes on the palate, so more Syrah on the palate, with some lovely ripe fruit. Quite rounded with a firm tannic streak; ripe and balanced and rounded. Tout en finesse. »

“Easy to drink and sophisticated, this Larzac wine maintains the integrity of the fruit”. A great success.

Decanter, Avril 2013

Les Vignes oubliées 2010, 17/20 (90) . The 2010 was jointly made by Jean-Baptiste Granier and Olivier Jullien and contains 60% Grenache with a complement of Syrah and Carignan. The style is long, fresh and harmonious, the minerality evident. Drink 2013-20@ A|c14.5%

L’Actualité, Canada, Novembre 2012

“… This wine seems to me to be particularly rounded, as much due to its palette of aromas as to its rich tannins and beautiful balance. Everything is there, layers of flavour leave the mouth feeling irresistibly full. A lot of wine for the price. Let’s hope that he continues to improve over the next five years”.

Un amateur parisien, Mai 2012

« I found your wine (2009) in Paris – it was the name and label that attracted me – thank you!!! As soon as I opened it, the corkscrew still in my hand, the room was filled with its scent and you knew you were in the presence of a great wine. In the mouth, it brought forth an explosion of memories, of light shining through trees and bursting into a sunlit glade! I wanted to thank you for having saved these vines and making such emotions possible. You say on the back of your bottle, “rare”; this not only applies to the vines, but what you do with them. Thank you for your work. »
