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.

Monique Sosa 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
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.
Jane Staples 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.

Heather Wall 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




Natalie's Review

Les Halos De Jupiter 2014, Côtes Du Rhône, Rhone A.C., France: 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. Drink: 2017-2022. 237817 15% D 750 mL  $38.95 Score: 88/100. September 16, 2017 Plush Pork Wine  Full Review

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.
