WINE ADVOCATE – 31 OCT 2011 – #197 – 92 pts –

If you can find any of the 400 cases made of Roquète’s luxury cuvée fashioned from old Grenache vines planted in the lieu-dit Les Pialons, don’t hesitate to buy it.
it offers attractive notes of framboise, raspeberries, sweet cherries, spring flowers, spice box and a whiff of licorice. This full-bodied, luscious, succulent 2009 possesses sweet tannin as well as low acidity. It should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.
