Wine is in the blood of the Avril family, winegrowers in the Southern Rhône since 1600. But quality at this 80-acre estate has steadily improved since winemaker Paul Avril took over from his father, Vincent, in 1987. The 2010 vintage earned the winery a spot in our Top 100 for the sixth time (including Wine of the Year in 2007). Sourced from more than 20 different plots of low-yielding vines, this red blends 80 percent Grenache with equal parts Syrah and Mourvèdre, vinified in ceramic-lined vats and aged in large wooden foudres for up to 12 months.
Wine Spectator 94 Points Very juicy and lively in feel, with pepper, tobacco and bay leaf notes leading the way for a core of raspberry, bitter plum and red currant coulis flavors. The long finish lets the pepper and tobacco notes play out, with pleasant acidity embedded throughout. Very Provençal in feel. Best from 2017 through 2026. 4,000 cases made.
Jancis Robinson (19/20 Points) “I tasted wines from a range of foudres and found them truly beautiful. It was the energy that was so remarkable after notably meaty, savoury aromas. Muscular, absolutely not heavy on the Grenache, these wines were very different from usual. Very ripe and cool but not skinny. Lovely polish but not over ‘made’. Admirably supple and refined. Even elegant. He says ‘burgundian’ (his highest form of praise).”
