"Rated among the 'World's Greatest Wine Estates' by Robert Parker. And he's not alone, we absolutely love this winery. Over the last 18 years of our family been associated with the Jaume family the wines have just got better and better and now rank amougst the best in France. They are the new guard in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, making clean powerful wines with beautiful perfume, balance and length. The 2021 Le Miocene is a drinker: rich, forward and powerful. Bring your next BBQ to life with a bottle!"

"Rich and concentrated, but racy too, with blackberry and dark plum fruit revealing crushed graphite and a kick of menthol, which adds freshness. Long and svelte, with refined tannins that drive the simmering, smoky close, this complex red shows a lot of stuffing. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 3,700 cases made, 580 cases imported."

"A rather elegant Chateauneuf with plenty of red fruits and some floral notes, plus a touch of tomato ketchup. Very good fruit, but also a solid base of tannins on the medium- to full-bodied palate. The crisp acidity is well-integrated at the long, moderately dry finish. A cuvee of 70% grenache, 20% syrah and 10% mourvedre. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
- James Suckling
"The classic cuvée from this estate is the 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Le Miocène, which is based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre. It's a forward, charming, spicy, and unquestionably Provençal beauty offering ample sweet cherry and darker berry fruits, some lavender, garrigue, and peppery nuances, medium body, ripe tannins, and a good finish."
