“Opulent nose of minty fruit pastille, bilberry and rosemary notes, bright acidity, cedarwood and lush blackberry on the inky palate.”

– Silver Medal for Minuit 2020 with a score of 90 points

– Silver Medal for Nuance 2020 with a score of 90 points

 And in other excellent international results, the wine critic Tamlyn Currin from the famous website noted:

– N°1 2008 17.5/20 (the best note in the report)

“Wonderful old-red-wine smell and so, so, so beautifully evolved! […] this is such a treat!”

– Minuit 2020 16/20

 ” A whoosh of papaya, blood orange and ripe peaches leaping right out the glass before you’ve got it anywhere near your nose.”

– Nielluccio 15/20

“An interesting variety to grow in the Languedoc! There is potential here.”

Tamlyn Currin was remarkably surprised by the cellaring ability and evolution of our N°1 2008.

“Cendrillon’s 2008 showed how wonderfully those big Languedoc tannins resolved and how much beauty there is in the evolution of that fruit.”  Tamlyn Currin
