Blackberry and black-cherry notes are marked by savory tones of bramble, licorice and wet earth in this wine. It's ample and opulent yet balanced by a fresh, mineral midpalate and firm, gripping tannins. Although enticing now for its primary, youthful fruit, the dense tannins and savory complexities should improve through 2035.

95 Jeb Dunnuck -

"I always love the wines of this estate, & unquestionably the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the finest vintage of this cuvee to date. About as classic as it gets, with tons of cedarwood, white pepper, kirsch, & blackberry fruits, it smells like a classic southern France street market. Full-bodied, powerful, & concentrated, with the purity of fruit that makes this vintage so special, it’s a blockbuster wine that’s already approachable yet will keep for 15+ years". ---Jeb Dunnuck

94 Wine Spectator

"Ripe & youthfully compact, this features waves of raspberry pate de fruit, plum coulis & cassis flavors rolling through, flecked with mouthwatering anise, apple wood & rooibos tea notes. The long finish shows very finely beaded acidity embedded throughout, letting the fruit unfurl wonderfully. Best from 2020 through 2040. 3,500 cases made".

94 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

Vivid ruby-red. Highly perfumed red and dark berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave floral nuance with air. Supple, open-knit and juicy on the palate, offering deeply concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of five-spice powder. The floral quality repeats strongly on a smooth, impressively persistent finish that shows just a hint of supple, fine-grained tannins.
