« I loved the 2015 St Chinian les Schistes, and it’s easily my favorite from this estate. Made from a 60/40 split of Syrah and Grenache, from higher elevation parcels and all schist soils, it has a terrific bouquet of lavender, spiced plums, leather and pepper. Showing more and more garrigue characteristic with air, this beauty is impeccably balanced on the palate, has top notch purity and notable tannin, all of which should allow it to drink nicely for at least 4-5 years, and I’m sure even longer. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker)

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 90/100 (Vin formidable)

About this wine : Nous avons adoré le Saint Chinian Les Schistes 2015, et c'est facilement notre préféré du domaine. Assemblage 60/40 de Syrah et Grenache, provenant de parcelles de schistes en altitude, il présente un superbe bouquet de lavande, de prune épicée, de cuivre et de poivre. Avec de plus en plus de notes de garrigue à l'aération, cette beauté est impeccablement équilibrée en bouche, avec une excellente pureté et des tanins notables, ce qui devrait permettre de l'apprécier pendant au moins 4-5 ans, certainement plus.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)

About the vineyard : Le domaine continue malgré l'absence du regretté Jean-François Izarn, décédé dans ses vignes lors d'une manoeuvre avec son tracteur. Biodynamiste, modeste, d'une humanité et d'une gentillesse rares, il avait beaucoup oeuvré pour son domaine et pour l'appellation. Il ne ratait jamais une occasion de magnifier ses vins et ceux de ses collègues par une cuisine de haute volée, son autre passion. Terres-blanches est une entrée de gamme qui nous fait penser à un haut de gamme, sans élevage apporteur de scories, on le recherchera avidement. La cuvée Les Schistes est aussi un must et Midi Rouge dominait la dégustation cette année au domaine.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Sélectionné (Nous rappelons que ce guide est un palmarès et qu'à ce titre, tous les domaines qui y figurent, même sans étoile, représentent, à nos yeux, l'excellence de la production française.)

About the vineyard : Ces cuvées, reflets de la diversité des terroirs de l'appellation Saint-chinian, constituaient de formidable leçon de goûts du sol. Le duo que formait Jean-François Izarn décédé en 2014 avec Cathy Planès oeuvrait depuis le début des années 1990 pour faire vivre ses particularismes, avec une sensibilité vigneronne de plus en plus fine et une grande attention portée au vivant. l'aventure continue grâce à la volonté de Cathy et de sa fille Camille, désormais revenue au domaine.
