90 points Le Guide des Meilleur Vins de France 2020: "From the small Aupilhac vineyard inherited from his father, dominated by mourvèdre and carignan, Sylvain Fadat since 1989 has built an exemplary estate, worked naturally, with numerous and balanced grape varieties. The vineyard has gradually grown with the conquest of high-altitude terraces of syrah and white grape varieties...[2018 Cuvée Aupilhac:] Very peppery and of strong character, the Cuvée Aupilhac is deep and smooth."

Importer notes: "30% Mourvèdre, 30% Carignan, 25% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 5% Cinsault. Montpeyroux, a quiet old wine village in the foothills of the Cévennes mountain range, produces powerful reds that remain fresh and balanced, as cool nights and occasional summer storms provide respite from the overall hot, dry Mediterranean conditions. Sylvain creates this cuvée with all the varieties permitted in the appellation, yielding an excellent snapshot of Montpeyroux. With Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, and Cinsault, this beautiful, deep-purple beast offers iron-infused black fruit, wild spice, garrigue herbs, and dense, focused minerality from the fossil-rich limestone and marl soils. Delicious and invigorating today, it can also age effortlessly—proof that a great site and honest farming are key to genuine, long-lived wines."
