The French wine guide Gault & Millau 2011 of the „best wines of France“ has labelled 7 wines from the Domaine de l’Arjolle.
A nose with powerful aromas of black berries and spices, slowly evolving towards hints of smoke and toast. Liquorice and smoothness in the beginning leave the palate to a mouth filling roundness, powerful richness and a long persisting final. This is great art! 16 of 20 possible points.
A very quaint nose for this aromatic white wine, floral, herbaceous and ripe, yellow fruits like apricot. Well balanced in the mouth, with pleasant acidity as well as soft creaminess and freshness on the final.
Delphine de Margon rouge Syrah-Cabenet 2009
Voilà! A great example of fleshy and savoury tannins. But first you will be charmed by the rich bouquet of the southern French “Garrigues”: Flowers and black fruit marmalade and Mediterranean herbs – you may taste the sun that’s in this wine.
Muscat Petit Grains 2009
A nose with fine aromas of vanilla, mango and lavender. A lively, juicy freshness and pleasant roundness on the palate, without any impression of heaviness, enriched by slight notes of fennel.
The other wines distinguished by the Gault & Millau guide are our Cabernet-Merlot 2009 Cuvée, the white Équinoxe 2009 and our Cabernet 2007, which was already highly labelled in the Netherlands.
