"The outstanding 2011 Les Maros is a blend of 60% old vine Grenache and the rest equal parts Carignan and Cinsault. The average age of the vines is at least 40 years. This stunning wine boasts abundant amounts of kirsch liqueur, licorice, new saddle leather, peppery spice box and loamy soil undertones. With full-bodied intensity, a layered, multidimensional mouthfeel and a supple, silky finish, this beauty should be drunk over the next 4-5 years."

"Deeper and richer, with more black fruits, licorice, pepper, liquid herb, and earthy minerality, the 2011 Les Maros, named after the Grenache parcel of the wine, is a blend of mostly Grenache (60%), with smaller parts Carignan and Cinsault. Completely destemmed and aged 8-months in vat, this medium to full-bodied blend is sweetly fruited and textured, with solid freshness, excellent mid-palate depth, and a classically structured finish. Opening up over the evening and showing solid complexity and character, it will be even better in another year, and evolve gracefully for 5-8 years."
