Extremely successful with the Grenache fruit naturally dominating the wine but with the other varieties still apparent. The subtle use of oak is there too but doesn't make its presence felt too strongly.

2010 to 2020
Cépagement:
80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah
ABV:
15%
Critic Reviews:
"It appears that the 2004 will slightly edge out 2003 at Cristia, an estate on the upswing due to the dedicated efforts of proprietors Alain and Baptiste Grangeon. The 2004 reveals fresh, concentrated blackcurrant flavours, serious intensity, good acidity and ripe tannin." 90-92/100 (Wine Advocate)

"Bright red. Fresh raspberry and strawberry on the nose, with suave floral accents. Clean and brisk, with vivid red fruit flavors and silky tannins. Finishes with bright red fruits and good length." (Josh Reynolds, Tanzer)

"Solid, with lots of ripe plum, currant and fig fruit backed by tobacco, olive and pepper notes. The finish is muscular, but there's also nice minerality, which stretches this out. Drink now through 2020" 91/100 (Wine Spectator)
