93 points ""Powerful, dense and rich, with concentrated flavors of raspberry, mocha, dark plum and spice. This is gorgeous midpalate and very suave, with a long finish of mineral, smoke and medium grained tannins. Drink now through 2015. 3,605 cases made." WS"

"One of the truly grand wines of the Langeudoc comes from Prieuré de St-Jean de Bébian. The Bebian vineyards lie in the foothills of the Cevennes and about 3 km from the town of Pezenas. The vineyards are planted to all 13 varietals found in Chateauneuf du Pape and consist of twenty-eight plots on arid, stony and south or southwest facing slopes. The vines here are almost all the result of selection massale, and maintain a fine pedigree- the syrah from Chave (Hermitage), the grenache from Chateau Rayas, and the mourvedre from Domaine Tempier in Bandol. Yields are ridiculously low at 25 hl/ha, more than half the authorized volume for the appellation. The 2001 Bebian is stunning, the result of a fantastic vintage as well as meticulous winemaking. This is not a wine for the timid, and it requires a minimum of 3-5 years of cellaring. Blackcurrant, licorice and tar are matched by fantastic minerality and length. This wine is one of the grand warhorses of the region. Best enjoyed in 8-10 years with braised pork belly or beef daube." Best 2006-2012
