A new cuvee, the 2013 Vin de France La 8 Grenache is a stunner that was aged 1-3-year-old barrels before being bottled in Novembre of 2014. It delivers terrific notes ok ripe black and red raspberry, licorice and crushed flowers to go with building richness, medium-bodied depth and a seamless, pure style on the palate. This is Grenache at its most elegant and finesse driven, yet it still offers beautiful texture and richness. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.

Petits échos du millésime 2016 : par « The Fine Wine Review »

« Fragrant aroma. Fruity yet not too sweet. Well-balanced, velvety-smooth wine ready to drink now and over the next five years. The perfect ending to an amazing tasting. Highly recommend! »

Petits échos du millésime 2017 : par « The Wine Advocate »

« A fine example of tank-aged Grenache, the 2017 IGP Cotes du Brian La Grenache 8 offers perhaps just a bit too much of the surrounding garrigue in its piney, herbal, resinous accents set against cherry fruit. More importantly, this full-bodied red showcases the variety’s uncanny ability to be large-scaled and diaphanous in texture at the same time, with silky tannins and nearly weeightless feel on the palate. »

Petits échos du millésime 2018 : par « Andreas Larsson »

« Medium deep ruby red colour. Ripe but nuanced nose offering ripe red berries, plum and Kirsch with some garrigue notes. Very nice palate, dense and ripe with fine proportions, grainy tannin, a fresh backbone and sweet fruit paired with crushed pepper and wild herbs. Long and unctuous finish with a nice drinkability. »
