Philippe Cambie is the oenologist and Michel Gassier is the winemaker for this Rhone Valley estate. Cedar with sweet purple plum flavours on the palate for this wine made from the Grenache grape. Supple and robust with smoke on the finish. Full-bodied and juicy with black fruit aromas and flavours. Pair with duck.

Reviews and Ratings

Jacqueline Cochrane rated this wine as 94/100
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby in colour, dried fruit, plums, orchids, dust and wood also an interesting chalky woody beef jerky note. On the mouth, a little more ripe red fruit and some light oak notes. Very smooth and crisp. A variety of spice; Paprika and peppery heat. Medium-light body and finish. Interesting Grenache-Syrah blend, overall this Jupiter lives up to its name and is pretty out of this world! Pair with pepper steak and stuffed peppers.
90 points - tasted April 2017
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A prime example of a delicious everyday food-friendly wine from the Côtes du Rhône. Red cherry, raspberry, black pepper, baking spice and chocolate, structured by light tannins and racey, mouthwatering acidity. Juicy deliciousness! Pair with coq au vin, tomato-based pasta dishes or pizza.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A rustic, aromatic and well-balanced black plum, dried lavender, tart cherry, leather Rhone Valley red. Enjoy this medium-bodied, high acid, juicy red with beef ragout. Tasted by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A medium(+) bodied Rhone of mostly Grenache with Syrah and a splash of Mourvedre. Deep ruby with great slow moving legs on the glass and lovely aromatics.Raspberry, cherry, warm baking spices, earthy, toasted oak and some hint of milk chocolate. Soft with bright acidity. This will not disappoint your palate or pocketbook. Lamb, beef, pork or game will pair nicely thank you!
Tasted: April 2017
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of very old Grenache 85%, Syrah 10% and Mourvèdre 5%. Shows fragrant tart berries, toasted oak and lavender aromas, with a full-bodied, smooth palate giving raspberries and cherries, oak, spice and a smoky touch. Round and flavourful. Pair with duck cassoulet.
Tasted March 2017
Philippe Cambie & Michel Gassier -Philippe Cambie is the oenologist and Michel Gassier is the winemaker for this Rhone Valley estate. Les Halos de Jupiter (2014) is made from Grenache and Mourvèdre wine grapes. Lots of cherry and blackberry flavours on the palate as well as grippy tannins. The wine would benefit from three or more years of cellaring. Decant an hour prior to serving. Pair with roast duck. - Community Wine Reviews
