    A slightly more serious wine than the Pichot Roucas above, given a longer cuvaison and cuve aged. Eric has cut back on the syrah here, so it’s a more classic southern mix from old vines. There is good depth to the fruit, nice spice behind and real freshness on the finish. Unfined and unfiltered. Very honest, characterful wine that is superb value for money. For drinking now to 2020

    Eric has just 0.85 hectare of massale selected white grapes, and whilst the vineyard is relatively young, his yields are just 16hh. He also harvests at 7am in the morning to preserve freshness. Aged for one year in two to four year old barrels, the wine is complex and dense but has retained an integral freshness and balance, with intriguing aromas of white fruits and flowers. For drinking now to 2020.

    This is a single parcel of 55yo grenache and 30yo syrah and mourvèdre. Whilst the old vine Restanques needs a little more bottle age, this is a cuve aged Vacqueyras with beautiful fruit, accessible in its youth. A mid-cherry colour, it has smoky and maraschino cherry notes on the nose and delectable fruit on the palate with cherry, liquorice, cinnamon, nutmeg and garrigues herbs. For drinking now to 2021.

    Old vine grenache (60-80 years old) two thirds destalked is the heart of this excellent wine. It has a beautiful deep plum colour, and a fresh black cherry nose intermingled with violets, thyme, ink and smoke. On the palate the wine is rich but freshened by a discreet minerality, with liquorice nuances of violet zan (french sweet!), dark chocolate and menthol supported by old vine tannins. For drinking now to 2021.
