Tamlyn Currin for JancisRobinson.com :
Everything I want a St-Chinian to be! Deeply perfumed, the timbre of pure fruit resonating in full tone through every corner of your mouth. A wine that demands a full-body response with tannins so silky that they slip out the glass, slip off your tongue, slip through the fruit. Ripe red fruit with a fresh pomegranate sharpness and texture, so juicy your mouth waters as the wine hits your lips and yet not simple. Tingling, long and so delicious that I had goosebumps rill down my spine. Tom Hills may have made this to be an easy quaffing wine, but it's so much more than that. I have eight more Languedoc reds to taste and all I want to do is abandon my post and go sit by the fire with an inappropriately large glass of this.
