93 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red with a bright rim. Spicy red berries, potpourri and minerals on the nose; this smells awfully fresh. Bright, palate-staining raspberry and blackcurrant flavors possess excellent concentration and are leavened by zesty minerality. Finishes smooth and silky, with echoing raspberry and floral qualities. This is complex enough to enjoy right now." (Nov/Dec '08) 93 points and one the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009: "Well-balanced, intense yet elegant. Full-bodied, showing vivid blueberry and wild berry flavors, with hints of nutmeg, cedar and coconut. Ends with a long, complex finish that shows a pleasant loamy, earthy quality. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. Drink now through 2014." (03/09) 91-93 points from Robert Parker: "A superb effort, the 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvèdre, 28% Grenache, 22% Syrah, and 5% Counoise) boasts a deep ruby/purple hue along with aromas of blue and black fruits, forest floor, and spring flowers, and a full-bodied personality displaying terrific intensity, richness, and length. Drink it over the next 10-12 years." (06/08)
