97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another magical wine from this estate outside the village of Barroux, the 2016 Ventoux La Pierre Noire checks in as 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that was brought up mostly in tank. This ruby/purple-hued beauty is the finest wine I’ve tasted from this domaine and offers an incredible array of black cherry liqueur, black raspberries, Provençal garrigue, ground pepper, and truffly earth. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, it demonstrates the quality of this great vintage with its seamless tannins, expansive, layered mouthfeel, and a finish that just won’t quit. This is one of those wines that delivers incredible intensity and power, yet still glides across the palate without any sense of heaviness or coarseness and is already a joy to drink. It will continue drinking beautifully for another 20 years or more. Drink: 2020-2040. (10/6/20)"
