“I tasted this and I thought of the great Rayas from the late 1980s”James Suckling


“This domaine, which now totals 21 acres in Châteauneuf and an additional 22 acres in Côtes du Rhône-Villages, is creating a new paradigm for wine, a statement I don’t make lightly. Saouma’s techniques are atypical; the results are simply thrilling. The reds are sublime, offering a purity of fruit I have rarely seen anywhere, while harnessing the power of Châteauneuf into an elegant expression of Grenache on sandy soils” – Wine Spectator
