Critical Acclaim

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Aug 2018

"Cristia’s 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a rich, ripe, slightly warm offering that’s a solid representative of the appellation. Cherry fruit picks up pepper and anise notes on the supple finish. Full-bodied and slightly open-knit, it should drink well during its first decade." (91 pts.)

JD91+ Jeb Dunnuck August 28, 2018

"The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) comes all from the Cristia lieu-dit (all sandy soils) and was destemmed and brought up mostly in concrete. I always find this cuvée forward and ready to go, yet the 2016 is tighter and more backward, with medium to full body, good acidity, and traditional notes of blackberries, plums, peppery spice, and garrigue. Give it a year or two." (91+ pts.)

VN92 Vinous Jul 2018

"Dark bright-hued red. Scents of ripe red berries, garrigue, woodsmoke and licorice, joined by a floral topnote that builds in the glass. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering gently sweet raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen on the back half. Smooth and floral on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves a subtle white pepper note behind." (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.
