95 Points - The Wine Advocate

“Abélard is a masculine, muscular, Southern Rhône-style Grenache-Sryah blend; a brooding testament to the scholar’s cerebral intensity and resilience.” - Nicole Rolet

“When tasting the 2010 Abelard alongside the Heloise, the derivation of the names becomes obvious. Abelard is the bigger, richer wine—the more "masculine," to deploy a somewhat dated/sexist stereotype. This full-bodied Grenache-dominated (85%) wine is packed with black cherries, star anise and other ground spices, and features a wonderfully long silky finish. Despite the size and concentration, the wine is complex and elegant, not an easy feat.” - Joe Czerwinski
