Wine Advocate 91 points - In bottle, the 2013 Vignes de Bila Haut checks in as a blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Carignan, from a combination of schist and limestone soils, that spent 12 months in a combination of concrete and stainless-steel tanks. It has great aromatics of dark berry fruits, bouquet garni, pepper and lots of minerality, medium+-bodied richness and depth, and a soft, seamless and even elegant fell on the palate. It’s ready to go now, and will drink nicely for 4-5 years.

"An open-textured red, offering fresh-crushed red berry flavors shaded by notes of tobacco leaf, with a soft and juicy finish. Drink now." Kim Markus Wine Spectator 85 points (2012 vintage)
