Gold Medal – Concours International de Lyon Wine Competition 2020
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Deep red with a purple hints in the glass. The vibrant nose bursts with black cherry, plum and liquorice as well as pepper notes and vanilla. The wine is concentrated and smooth on the palate with a lovely texture and a spicy toasty finish.
Produced by the highly acclaimed LGI wines, awarded Best French Still Wine Producer at Berliner Wein Trophy in 2017, 2018 and 2019! Originally the brainchild of Alain Grignon, who had a vision of making affordable, classic French wines designed specifically for the international market. Now under the supervision of oenologist Xavier Roger.
The Combe Rocher (literally ‘rocky valley’) range is one of pure authenticity crafted from carefully selected terroirs, situated on high altitude slopes, with rocky soils."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"It's wonderfully fruited and fragrant, showing dark plum, mulberry, warm spice and assorted nut characters on the nose. The palate offers excellent fruit intensity, well supported by velvety mouthfeel and fine tannins. Medium-full-bodied, flavoursome and highly appealing. At its best: now to 2024."
