"Spicy elements lurk within the medium-bodied palate. It's fresh and bright, with juicy raspberry acidity and a touch of salinity on the finish. A lighter style, with persistence and vibrancy. It is very nicely balanced and weighted, a highly drinkable wines. There's just a touch of ripe sweetness, but it works to bring balance to the whole."
Rated 90/100 Decanter Magazine
"I continue to be impressed by the wines from Fontaine du Clos, and while they never lack for texture or fruit, they always display plenty of classic southern Rhône character." -- Jeb Dunnuck
