RATINGS: 90pts Robert Parker

Attracted by the location and her family lineage of five generations, Veronique Etienne decided to take it over ten years ago. The house is an imposing manor adjacent to farm buildings. She has since fully immersed herself in the domaine for several reasons: a love of nature, a passion for terroir and its traditions, a need to put down roots, and a respect for the region's cultural heritage. Vineyard & winery are in their 2nd year of Bio conversion in order to make better wines and preserve the terroir.

TASTING NOTES: Robert Parker 90 points: The 2012 Saint Chinian Etienne is a blend of 50% Syrah and 25% each of Grenache and Carignan that spent 18 months in 400 Liter barrels. It exhibits lots of violet, menthol, white pepper, plum and blackberry like fruit to go with a medium bodied, elegant, finesse driven style on the palate. The balance here is superb, and it has enough silky tannin to evolve nicely for 4 6 years..Jeb Dunnuck, April/2015
