About

92

“More approachable, with perfumed notes of black licorice, sage and roasted meats balanced by a core of sweet black raspberry and cassis-styled fruit, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources is medium-bodied, beautifully textured and possesses fine, polished tannin on the finish. Slightly more rounded and textured than the Les Hauts Lieux, this beauty comes from sandy soils (the same region where the Reserve comes from) located on a north-facing slope, at a slightly lower elevation than where the Les Hauts Lieux comes from. Perfumed, complex and rich, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years. Drink now-2023.”

92 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

“Bright ruby. Fresh red fruits, flowers and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a refreshing touch of blood orange. Packs a pretty serious punch but comes off as elegant. Finishes supple and sweet, with gentle tannic grip and lingering floral pastille and spicecake notes.”
