93 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Cotes Catalanes l'Enfant Perdu, which is labeled as their secondary wine, it's a fabulous effort that's comprised of equal parts Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Lladoner Pelut that's aged half in tank and half in 25% new barrels. Structured, full and rich, with a voluptuous texture and a massive mid-palate, it offers layers of blackcurrants, plum, smoked earth and licorice on both the nose and palate. It's a rocking value to drink over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer."
93 Pts David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The Domaine des Enfants 2010 L'Enfant Perdu - comprising close to equal parts of Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre and Syrah (there being no Suis L'Etoile bottling from this vintage) - seems delightfully to combine the deep, dark fruit of its 2009 predecessor with the energy, dynamic complexity and salinity of the 2008. Tar, wormwood and licorice inflect ripe, almost implosively-concentrated blackberry and cassis in the nose as well as on a polished and infectiously juicy palate. Impingement of crunchy berry seeds and crushed stone add stimulation, while marine salinity and alkalinity, smoky peat and Latakia tobacco contribute to haunting as well as mouthwatering complexity and depth that vibrantly linger. I suspect that this outstanding value will perform magnificently and versatility through at least 2020."
Translation of the text on the label:
"Inside we feel empty. We exist, but do not really take part in life which gives us a feeling of unreality. The reason is that we lost the inner child, which leads to not having a connection with ourselves. The survival of our planet is dependant of our comprehension that we are all one. This feeling of being in unison with everything that is alive, we can only feel when we experience ourselves as an entity."
"One of the new, up-and-coming estates in the Roussillon that needs to be on every wine lover's radar is the Domaine des Enfants, which is run by the talented Marcel Buhler and his wife Carrie Sumner. Located just outside the village of Maury, the estate was founded in 2006 and covers 23 hectares, with a wealth of old vines that are all farmed organically (and by horse). " Jeb Dunnuck
"Marcel Buhler and his Oregonian, sommelier-turned-chef de cave wife Carrie Sumner showed me an exciting set of wines revealing a perpetual willingness to think outside the proverbial box and experimentally, while retaining a certain recognizable estate style. (Readers are urged to consult my extensive account of Swiss-native Buhler's estate, motivations and labor-intensive methods in issue 195.) Echoing comments I heard from Marjorie Gallet - another organic grower who plows with a horse - Buhler suggested that many of his vineyards, which range in age from 50 to more than 100 years, are only just beginning to reveal their vines' true potential following a half-dozen years of vineyard work focused on friable texture and microbial diversity in their soils. Given the quality of wines Buhler showed me already two years ago for issue 195 from his second and third vintages, 2007-2008, all I can say is that if this prediction is accurate, set yourself up for a sizeable allocation of future Domaine des Enfants releases and you will be very glad you did! The recent wines here, incidentally, have all fermented spontaneously, after a period in which Buhler employed cultured yeasts. He characterized 2010 as "very difficult" due to its odd extremities of weather and the effects of localized hail, but 2011 as delivering "dream quality," not to mention in good quantity. But in truth, he excelled in both years, and although no Suis L'Etoile was bottled from the former, the 2010 La Larme de L'Ame is as impressive as any Domaine des Enfants bottling I have tasted, which is saying something given this estate's overall qualitative niveau."
