Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

60/20/20 blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. Juicy and baked fruits, namely cherry and plum, followed up by violet. Good acidity and tannins paired with a full body. Ripe and jammy from the nose through the palate to the finish. A good value red, new world styling with old world heritage, that will please the crowd. A pleasant match for veal and beef dishes.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah opens with raspberry and blackberry on the nose. Generous plummy dark fruit on the palate just bordering on jammy. It is medium-bodied and smooth with fine chalky tannins on the finish. A very approachable and overall enjoyable pour. Good value. Pair with burgers or ribs.

Natalie's Review

Le Cirque Grenache Noir Carignan Syrah 2015, Côtes Catalanes, Roussillon I.G.P., France: From the Côtes Catalanes, a zesty and robust Grenache, Carignan and Syrah red wine blend. Love the fresh dark berry, ripe plum, wild herb sweet spice flavours on the palate with a lingering soft smoky finish. So balanced and so good. Great now. Pair with a roast of pork.

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.
