Recommendation on 2016 Hachette Guide of Rosé wines for the Rosé DG 2015
"On those warm lands, the dominating Grenache combines well with the Mourvèdre. After nightly harvesting and direct pressing, the wine displays a light, orange salmon, robe, and delivers soft but elegant aromas of white flowers, hardly peppered. More expressive, the mouth is supple, round and slim."

Obtained in 2015

Two Stars in Hachette Guide for the Prestige 2010
"It is on the pebbles of Saint-Georges-d'Orques that this Cuvée with its deep robe, ornated with tiled reflections, was born. The syrah, its major variety, gives it its intense notes of blackcurrant and iris, whereas the mourvèdre brings spices and scrubland. In the mouth this 2010 is fruity, round and silky with a nice fullness and velvet tanins. The finish is long and smooth."

89/100 rating by the Wine Enthusiast (USA) for the Grés de Montpellier 2012:
"Cherry-colored but flecked with black, this wine is bright. It shows an underlying earthiness on both the nose and palate. It also tastes of creosote, game, crunchy blackberry and peak-of-season fig. The acidity is slightly nervous and the tannins are chewy. Medium-plus in body, with a lovely sippability and no cumbersome glycerol, this is a delicious wine that has room to age a bit further given its lingering finish. Drink now–2019."

Gold Medal at contest of Grands Vins de Fance for the Grés de Montpellier 2013

Ranked among "Premiers Grands Vins du Languedoc" (best category) of Dussert Gerber guide for the overall production of the Domaine
"A beautiful Coteaux-du-Languedoc, cuvée Prestige 2010, Saint Georges d'Orques terroir, syrah and mourvèdre, varieties raised separately for 12 months in barrels and 12 months after blending, colored and solid, with a nose dominated by small stoned berries and smoky notes, a powerful wine, a wine to age. The red Grés de Montpellier 2012 (syrah and mourvèdre), perfumed (blackberry, spices, humus), is rich in color, with tasty tanins, an intense mouth with notes of plum and humus. One continues with this Languedoc Saint Georges d'Orques cuvée 400 of 2012, solidly framed, combining finesse and concentration, with its lasting nuances of redcurrant and liquorice, a complex and intense mouth, a wine which starts to be well appreciated. Like the Languedoc Saint Georges d'Orques cuvée Prestige 2012, a strong body, with nuances of musk and small jammed berries (wild strawberry and morello), a rich mouth, a nice dark red color, which you can serve with a veal liver or a pastilla of pigeon with figs.
Have a taste of the Languedoc Rosé 2014, frank, fruity and subtle, a very aromatic wine, and also this very good IGP Pays d'Oc Chardonnay 2014, well balanced, with its notes of white flowers and fresh nuts, a nice fullness in nose and in mouth."

Silver Medal at contest of Grands Vins de Fance for the Rosé 2014

Ranked within "TOP 100 Wines of Languedoc Sud de France" in the UK for Prestige 2011
"Deep red color with aromas of fresh and ripe fruit, yields, after an extensive attack, an impression of balance because the tannins are silky."

 

Obtained in 2014

One Star in Hachette Guide for the Grés de Montpellier 2011
"Cuvée 2011 has a complex nose with small berries reminding morello, blackcurrant or raspberry, together with nuances of leather and musk. The silky tanins bring finess and elegance to a well rounded palate. A pleasant wine, perfect for a lamb tajin or a roast pork with prunes."
