Decanter Mai 2010 : Burgundian couple Anne Gros et Jean Paul Tollot who work for separate family estates,wanted to do a joint project, so they looked in the Midi and found superb old Carignan vines in Minervois. This as lovely spice with fresh peppery fruit and a fresh finish.There is southern warmth while retaining essential elegance. One for the barbecue. *** 16/20
Jancis Robinson septembre 2010 : There is a 50/50, an unoaked cocktail of fruit and acidity that reminded me of nothing than a young Bourgogne Rouge.
Guide Parker 2011 : 90/100 – The combination of textural refinement; palpable extract yet levity; sheer juicy exuberance; and persistent, dynamic interplay of stone, salt, bittersweet nut oils, and dark berry fruit render Gros and Tollot’s 2008 La 50/50 a fine value apt to prove highly versatile over the next several years. Its slight aura of distilled fruit esters is an theme on which the youthful 2010 raw materials consistently pick up.
