94 points "The outrageously delicious 2001 Costers de Mas Igneus Old Vines is fashioned from the winery's six oldest parcels (planted between 1901-1920). A blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Carignan aged one year in new French oak, it is bottled without fining or filtering. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of black raspberry liqueur, cassis, minerals, kirsch, and flowers, superb purity, a lush, layered texture, and a tremendously persistent finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. Moderately high tannin in the finish suggests aging of 3-5 years will bring even more attention to this impressively endowed wine. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. This is an outstanding value."

94 points "This is almost too easy to like. Lush blueberry jam and piecrust notes are rich and sweet, enrobed in a plush texture and lingering sweetly on the vanilla-scented finish. It may not satisfy the traditionalists, but the pleasure is hard to deny. Drink now through 2009. 310 cases made. (TM)" Best 2005-2009
