Rating : Guide Hachette 2** (Remarkable wine) + Coup de Cœur
« Fifth coup de coeur for the estate, the forth for this cuvee made and aged in barrels. The 2015 shows a bright colour and offers an intense nose combining the vanilla oakiness, the finesse of the acacia honey and the freshness of the fruit. The palate is solid, fleshy and very long, supported by a delicate yet racy oak. A good balance between the ripeness of the vintage and the finesse of the aging that will augur a good evolution in the cellar. » (Le Guide Hachette des Vins 2017)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 14/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2018) : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)

About this wine : Croquant, tendre et sur les agrumes, c'est encore un jeunot à qui il faut laisser un peu plus de temps pour s'épanouir. À oublier en cave jusqu'en 2018.

About the vineyard : Le terroir d'éboulis calcaires de ce domaine est typique de l'appellation Palette. L'amphithéâtre naturel formé par les collines environnantes protège la vigne du mistral et crée un microclimat favorable. Stéphane Spitzglous s'applique à la vigne comme au chai, et on prend beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir cette propriété sur la route entre la Sainte-Victoire et Aix. Il a également quelques vignes en appellation Côtes de Provence, ce qui lui permet de diversifier ses cuvées.

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 1*Étoile (Vin très réussi)
Vineyard rated (guide 2018) : Wines regularly rewarded (The wines of this producer are regularly rewarded by the guide)

About this wine : Au nez, des fruits blancs et des agrumes sur fond vanillé ; en bouche, du fruit toujours, des nuances beurrées aussi qui signent un bon boisé, de la densité, une belle allonge et une finale plus sous tension.

About the vineyard : En 1996, Henri Bonnaud a transmis à son petit-fils Stéphane Spitzglous un beau vignoble de 28 ha (converti au bio), implanté sur les calcaires de Langesse, face à la montagne Sainte-Victoire, sur lesquels sont produits des vins de palette depuis 2004.

Rating without reviews of M. JEAN LOUIS G. Published on 03/11/2018
The minuscule appellation of Palette is very near the city of Aix-en-Provence. Just a handful of producers work the 23 hectares (57 acres) of vineyards that are planted to about 25 different grape varieties and give exceptional wines. The appellation is primarily contained within the villages of Meyreuil and Tholonet but extends into a small part of the commune of Aix-en-Provence. ...
