Critical Acclaim


RP93
The Wine Advocate
- "A stunning effort and showing the class of the vintage, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is comprised of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre that spent 24 months in foudre prior to bottling. Rich, textured and medium to full-bodied, with ample black cherry, olive tapenade and subtle meatiness, this traditional effort stays pure and lively, with fine tannin emerging on the finish. It can be consumed now or cellared for over a decade. "


V93
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
- "(aged for three years in large, old foudres): Vivid ruby-red. Suave, smoke-tinged red fruit and floral pastille aromas show very good clarity and licorice and cracked pepper add complexity. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering sappy, gently chewy raspberry, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors that put on weight and spread out slowly with air. Gentle tannins give shape and grip to the clinging, impressively persistent finish, which leaves notes of berry skin and candied flowers behind. There's less Grenache than usual in this year's bottling, which no doubt contributes to the wine's spine and structure."


WS92
Wine Spectator
- "A solid version, with roasted mesquite and alder notes providing the frame while the steeped plum, raspberry and black currant fruit core waits in reserve. Best from 2017 through 2025."
