Abbaye Sylva Plana  Faugères "Le Songe de l'Abbé" 2013 -  89 pts

"Also with a distinct meatiness, the 2013 Faugères Le Songe de l'Abbé is a mostly destemmed blend if Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan that was brought up mostly in concrete tanks, yet with 40% of the blen in two- to three-year-old barrels. Black raspberries, currants, beef broth and spice emerge from this medium-bodied, fruity, fresh, classy red." - Jeb Dunnuck (, Issue # 224, April 2016)

Abbaye Sylva Plana  Faugères "La Closeraie" 2014

"The 2014 Faugères La Closeraie offers some smoke, chocolaty dark fruits and beef broth-like characteristics in a medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured style." - Jeb Dunnuck (, Issue # 224, April 2016)

MAS GRANIER  Coteaux du Languedoc "Les Grés" 2013 - 89 pts

"The ruby colored 2013 Languedoc Les Grés is a borderline outstanding blend of 70% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache that was brougt up all in a barrel. Black raspberries, spring flowers and hints of rose garden all emerge from this medium plus-bodied, pretty, balanced 2013 that will drink nicely for 4-6 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (, Issue # 224, April 2016)
