In 2012 Bernard moved to make his wines at his friends Laurent Delaunay’s estate, Domaine de Lambisque, in the northern reaches of the Cotes du Rhone appellation.

"Chocolate and liquorice, dark cherry and discreet spiced oak. Fleshy and full bodied, slight warmth, but covered by ample fruit and powdery tannin. Robust and deep with a good finish. Good stuff." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 91 points.
