Critical Acclaim

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 3rd Mar 2016

"A step up on the richness scale over the classic cuvee, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin is as sexy a Grenache as you’ll find in the vintage. Blackberry liqueur, black cherries, olives, crushed flowers and licorice all emerge from this beauty, and it hits the palate with a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet, resolved tannin and a great finish. This blossoms with time in the glass and will continue drinking beautifully for 4–6 years." (96 pts.)

ST93+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2008

"Dark purple. Intensely floral nose offers an explosive bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, licorice and dried flowers. Extremely sweet and fresh, with lively red and dark berry flavors, nervy minerality and fine-grained tannins. A strikingly elegant midweight, with outstanding finishing cut and length" (93–95 pts.)

SP93 Wine Spectator Nov 15, 2008

"Really juicy, with a sappy core of cassis, raspberry and currant confiture backed by notes of bittersweet cocoa, fruitcake and mulled spice. The long finish is muscular but well-integrated. Best from 2009 through 2028." (93 pts.)

RP93+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2007

"The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin (18,000 bottle produced) is brilliant. Made from 100% Grenache from sandy and clay soils, the wine shows a stunning purity of licorice-infused black raspberry and black cherry notes, good, firm tannins, and stunning richness in an opulent, hedonistic style. The wine is a classic example of old vine Grenache and of Provence. This full-bodied, powerful wine, which has no hard edges, should drink beautifully for at least 15 or more years." (93–95 pts.)

ST93 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2009

"Deep ruby. Spicy red fruits and flowers on the nose, with a gentle underpinning of smoky minerals. Raspberry and blackberry dominate the palate, which is impressively deep, smooth and tannin-free. Leaves sweet red berry and tangy mineral notes behind on the impressively persistent finish. This wine’s elegance will allow it to be drunk young." (93 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.
