About

93

"More concentrated, youthful and pure than the Cuvee des Deux Sœurs, the smoking 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape la Tour du Lion boasts terrific notes of kirsch, blackberry, roasted meats and Asian spice. Made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, aged 12 months in 20% barrels and 80% concrete, it's a beautifully Provencal, medium to full-bodied, polished effort that will evolve gracefully for 10-12 years."

91 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Ruby-red. Sexy red berry liqueur and floral pastille aromas accented by peppery spice and mineral elements. Taut, racy and focused on the palate, offering zesty redcurrant and raspberry flavors but no rough edges. Juicy and approachable Châteauneuf with strong finishing thrust, silky tannins and enticing lingering sweetness."
