92/100 "Deeper in color than the l'Equilibre cuvée, the Syrah-dominated 2015 Languedoc l'Origine is a head-turner that’s loaded with notions of cassis, blackberries, crushed peppercorns and graphite. Medium to full-bodied, forward and elegant, with sweet tannin, drink it on release and over the following 6-7+ years."
