WINE ADVOCATE – 31 OCT 2011 – #197 – (93-95) 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.
This vintage is slightly superior to the 2009, and only a step behind the monumental 2007. Precise notes of black raspberries, black cherries, spring flowers, lavender, licorice and incense are found in this full-bodied, beautifully proportioned, intense red. Enjoy it over the next 15 years.
