''Quite frankly, delightful! Tamarillo, guava, salt, tomato jam, blood orange. Flavours and layers pinging and colliding across the palate – you can almost hear the shouts of unfettered laughter. Sumac and paprika dance in a hot popping popcorn pot. Papaya tastes silky and weighty and yet there is a racy edge. This was absolutely divine with Ottolenghi’s grilled courgette, feta and cascabel honey salad.'' Score : 17 points, Jancis Robinson
''A genuine rosé sparkling wine – it could almost be a fruit juice – delights the palate with lively fine bubbles, smooth fruity aromas, freshness thanks to its low alcohol content! Serve well-chilled to quench thirst, indulge the taste-buds and banish gloom!'' The Guibert Family
Expert Rating: James Suckling, 90/100.
About the winery: In 1971, ethnologist and Ireland specialist Véronique Guibert de la Vaissière and her husband Aimé, a tanner and glove manufacturer in Millau, fell in love with an old, abandoned farmhouse in the unspoilt rural setting of the Gassac valley near the ancient abbey of Aniane. In 1972, on the recommendation of their friend, Professor Henri Enjalbert, a geologist pecialising in the relationship between soils and grapes, they planted 17,000 non-cloned Cabernet-Sauvignon grafts sourced from top Bordeaux properties. An underground cellar was built on the site of the former Gallo-Roman watermill adjacent to the farmhouse, over the cold spring water from the river Gassac. For nearly five decades, the Guibert family has watched over and tended to the vines with unfailing dedication. Today, the second generation has taken over the Domaine.
