Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a sensational bouquet of mineral, underbrush, mushroom, bright cherry and raspberry aromatics. Incredibly intense, vibrant, and lingering on the palate, this superb effort will surely evolve as well as any great Chateauneuf-du-Pape but with no track record, there is only one sure way to find out.

Medium red. Wild aromas of strawberry, leather, smoke and underbrush. Concentrated and layered grenache, with strawberry, smoke and mineral flavors that reminded me a bit of mourvedre. At once sweet in fruit and classically dry, finishing with notes of gunflint and soot and sneaky length. The yield here was just 1.2 tons per acre, according to Baron. Includes a bit of Syrah; aged entirely in old puncheons from Rene Rostaing. This was racked only for the bottling in August of 2008, although Baron noted that the 2007, a tighter wine, has been racked twice to this point. (ST)
