Details

Lush and inviting, with the ripe plum, blackberry and cassis profile typical of the vintage, all backed by polished structure and anise, black tea and fruitcake flavors. Drink now through 2030. -James Molesworth, Aug 2017

Deep ruby. Pungent aromas of ripe red fruit, licorice, potpourri and black cardamom carry a bright mineral overtone. Pliant, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors, a hint of spicecake and impressive back-end energy. Fine-grained tannins add shape and gentle grip to an extremely long, floral- and spice-driven finish. -Josh Raynolds, Mar 2017

The deep ruby-colored 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee Du Papet (70% Grenache and 15% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah) is the flagship of the estate and comes from four different terroirs: Bois Dauphin, la Crau, Montalivet and Pied de Baud. It’s only partially destemmed and aged 90% in foudre and 10% in demi-muids. It’s a classic and old school as they come and has beautiful notes of cured meats, pepper, Provençal spices, blackcurrants and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with a stacked mid-palate, it should come in behind the off the charts 2010 and 2007, but should match the 2012 and 2009. It’s a beautiful wine that will have decades of longevity. -Jeb Dunnuck, Oct 2016

This is 70% grenache with the remainder equal parts syrah and mourvèdre. Aromas of ripe raspberry, red plum and cherry, with herbs, pepper and a whole bunch of sappiness, too. The palate has radiant, regal tannins in fine proportion. Super fresh. Best from 2020. -James Suckling, Jan 2018
