The Château Tour de Sarrail 2009 has a beautifully defined nose of blackberry, minerals and well integrated oak but it needs patience to unite in the glass. Medium-bodied, contained, focused, with well-integrated if prominent new oak towards its long finish.
18.5/20 Points - Raymond Chan
• 3,157 vines of Dijon and Abel clones, 22 year old
• Winemaker: Alex Craighead of Alana Estate - determined with the minimal intervention approach, he lets the vineyard to speak for itself.
The L’Hydropathe is the top of the range rosé wine from Domaine Sainte Lucie and is a standout among Provence Rosé’s. Red berries, pomegranate, dried flowers, herbs are just some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass in this texturally finessed, beguiling and totally beautiful wine.
98 Points - James Suckling
This has a perfect nose of blackberry, tar, black pepper, thyme, cloves and rose petal. Full body and firm and very silky and polished tannins. The finish goes on for minutes. Best ever. Great class. 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. Drink in 2019 but so gorgeous now.
