A full-bodied southern French red wine from the Rhine Valley with gorgeous aromas of black fruit and pleasantly bitter, dry finish. Winemaker Michel Gassier and oenologist Philippe Cambie have crafted a blockbuster here. Pair with roast duck.

Food pairings: pepper steak, hamburgers, roasted root vegetables.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Dynamic stuff from the Rhone, with lots of black briar, black cherry, fig paste, camphor, graphite, fruit pit, and crushed rock. There's some dried purple and black flower on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 91 Points.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sweet candied berries on the nose while berries and popcorn were the flavours I saw. Has some tannins so you could keep this 3-4 years from now.
Halos de Jupiter (2016) is a full-bodied Rhone red produced by winemaker Michel Gassier and oenologist Philippe Cambie. Drink now and for the next three years. Pair with roast duck. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
