94 Pts. Robert Parker

Grape Variety: 95% Callet, 5% Manto Negre and Fogoneu
Tasting Notes: “The 2010 Son Negre, named after the vineyard that means “dark place,” is also based on 95% old vine Callet and sees 19 months in tight-grained new French oak. It is initially bashful on the nose and demands coaxing to awake those precise, almost crystalline red berry fruits. The palate is very well-balanced with supple red cherries, cassis and a touch of blueberry. It has wonderful composure and elegance and constitutes a very classy, sophisticated wine to age over a decade.” Wine Advocate 2012
