Tasting Notes

Starting with the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape, it’s a forward, supple and sweetly fruited effort that offers up loads of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and pepper on the nose. Playing in the medium-bodied, elegant spectrum, it will evolve nicely for 7-8 years.

Score: 91

A roasted juniper note leads the way for a core of steeped damson plum and blackberry fruit that's lined with accents of dust and tobacco, witha minerally finish. Pure, delivering an old-school feel. Drink now through 2026.

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator 01 January 2014

Bright ruby. A heady bouquet presents candied red fruits, garrigue, woodsmoke and cured meat, with an exotic Asian spice quality gaining strength with air. Sappy, penetrating and seamless, offering sweet, concentrated red and dark berry flavors and a touch of licorice. The smoke and spice notes come back strong on the clinging finish, which is framed by silky, nicely woven tannins. This already shows terrific complexity.

Score: 93
