18 Points, Tamlyn Currin (Jancis Robinson)
I tasted this six months ago, and it's a wine that defines Roussillon. Its wildness; its utter defiance; its dance of honey and herbs, bronze and petrichor, metal and rocks; its head-tossing beauty. This is a wine that tastes of dawn spilling silent light over mountains. It's a wine that tastes of cold wind blowing through wild fennel and over scree in those dark-blue moments just after the sun has set. It's a wine that tastes of time lost. You cannot taste this wine unless you approach it with your whole, open heart.
