Comments = Here is a rosé that has everything of a gastronomic wine: finesse, delicacy, aromatic nuances, precision and a very good aroma-acidity balance. All with a deep and quite long finish on the fruit with delicate touches of spices and thyme. A very beautiful wine which is likely to change many preconceived ideas about rosé wines.

Final Grade = A-

Tasting note: DOMAINE DE TREVALLON, Rouge, 2020

Comments = A red wine of great gastronomy that skilfully combines finesse and power to achieve breathtaking precision on the palate. The tannins although present know how to be forgotten to allow to appreciate beautiful aromas of black fruits and beautiful spicy notes. A long and complex finish that smells of the South, Provence and the local scrubland.

Final Grade = A

Tasting note: ‘Aurel’, Domaine les Aurelles, 2017

Comments = a very beautiful wine from my region of origin which knows how to express the full potential of Mourvèdre in this unique terroir of the Pézénas region which mixes gravel, sand and basaltic soil together with light maritime breezes. A good presence in the mouth with a good acidity-aroma balance. Silky and slightly velvety tannins go perfectly with aromas of black fruits centered around blackberry and a lengthy finish. It is without any doubt among the greatest wines of the region.

Final Grade = A

Tasting note: ‘Pingus’, Dominio de Pingus, 2020

Comments = Concentration and elegance are the key words to describe the beauty of this wine. An exceptional wine, produced in small quantities and extremely sought after. An aromatic mouth centered around the characteristic aromas of Tempranillo (cherry, fig, dill) with hints of spices accompanied by subtle and perfectly integrated woody notes. A long, deep, captivating and slightly velvety finish that evolves each time you taste a new sip. It is undoubtedly a master piece that rivals the greatest wines.

Final Grade = A++

Tasting note: Caiarossa, 2019

Comments = A very fine 2019 vintage whose tannic structure suggests very good aging potential. The aromas already present and precise are just waiting to evolve to express their full potential. This wine clearly deserves all the attention of great connoisseurs who will appreciate the expression of the Tuscan terroir in this wine whose perfect acidity comes from this gently sloping vineyard that fully benefits from its orientation and its position in relation to the Mediterranean Sea.

Final Grade = A
