About

91-93

"Bright ruby. Intense cherry and red berry aromas pick up notes of incense, anise and lavender with aeration. Spicy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Closes sweet and quite long, with harmonious tannins building slowly and folding into the juicy fruit. "

90-93 Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre, with the Grenache and Mourvèdre aged in concrete tanks and the Syrah in barrels. A terrific base cuvée that has loads to love, it offers lots of black cherries, blackcurrants, peppery herbs and licorice in a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated style. It has a touch more concentration than the Prémices cuvée, but isn’t as elegant or polished."
