"Lovely iodine and leather character here – proper maturity and reach, with a lovely bitter juniper note to finish. Fruit is still ripe and thick. Lovely state of maturity. 17/20", Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com, 20th December 2018.

Guy Ricard’s vines are situated on the plateau des garrigues near the town where some elevation brings extra heat during the day and cooler air by night. The soil is mostly clay and sand covered by a thick layer of pebbles from the ancient bank of the river Ouvèze. On this exposed site the Mistral has a drying and cleansing effect on the vines, preventing disease.
