About

Rating:

95

"One of my favorite wines, and up there with the top dozen or so efforts in the vintage, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d’Armand comes all from sandy soils and old vines planted in the famed La Crau lieu-dit. Full-bodied, voluptuous and layered, it doesn’t pull any punches, yet never seems over-the-top, heavy or cumbersome. Giving up notes of garrigue, sugared spice, blackberry, black cherry liqueur and spring flowers, it’s already drinking beautifully, but will continue to shine through 2024 at a minimum."
