Cuvée Le Clos des Oliviers :
'' Le nez est épanoui, subtil et profond. On sent le cui ciré, la racine d'iris, l'essence de thérébinthe, les beaux raisins, le terroir de rocaille. La bouche est nette comme un coup de fouet, rafraîchissante''.

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2014
Le Clos des Oliviers - Languedoc AOC - Sommières denomination - 2011 vintage, the first vintage of our young denomination, was tasted and selected by the magazine Robert Parker Wine Advocate in April 2014 - with a score of 90/100.
''A knockout blend of equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2011 Sommières Le Clos des Oliviers is a big, ripe wine that exhibits notions of plum pit, melted licorice, smoked earth and roasted herbs-like qualities on the nose. Aged 12 months in neutral barrels, it is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, layered and beautifully textured on the palate, with a terrific finish. I think it's superb now, yet it should continue to shine over the coming 6-8 years."
