Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 24th Sep 2020

"The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition gives the impression of dusty earth and finely ground spices on the nose, all coating a core of ripe cherries. It’s medium to full-bodied, silky and concentrated, with nice grip and persistence on the finish, where it picks up hints of cocoa powder and ground cloves. It’s turned out even better — more structured and complete — than I expected after last year’s visit to the estate." (92 pts.)

JD90+ Jeb Dunnuck August 16, 2019

"Moving to the reds and starting with the classic 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape, this checks in as 75% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvèdre, partially destemmed and brought up in a mix of demi-muid and foudre. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a deep, smoky, meaty bouquet that has beautiful fruit as well as loads of ground pepper nuances. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, has no hard edges, and a great finish. Drink it on release and over the following decade." (90–92 pts.)

JD93 Jeb Dunnuck October 6, 2020

"Moving to the bottled wines and starting with the base 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape, this blend of 75% Grenache, 11% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, was only 40% destemmed and brought up all in foudre and older barrels. A very classic, old-school bouquet of red and black currants, sappy green herbs, cedarwood, ground pepper, and smoked game gives way to a medium to full-bodied Châteauneuf du Pape that has a lively spine of acidity, firm tannins, and a great finish. This is classical old-school Châteauneuf du Pape of all the way and is going to benefit from 2 to 4 years of bottle age and keep for 15 years or more." (93 pts.)

VN92 Vinous Oct 2021

"Deep ruby-red. Ripe, spice-accented red and dark berry scents, along with hints of succulent herbs and flowers. Broad and fleshy on entry, offering appealingly sweet cherry and black raspberry flavors that tighten up through the midpalate. Smooth, even tannins build on a long, spicy finish that strongly echoes the berry and floral notes." (92 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
