Critical Acclaim

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Aug 2018

"The stunning 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Prestige features dramatic flavors of honey, pineapples and tangerines. It’s broad, full-bodied and expansive in the mouth, imbued with palate-saturating richness. A blend of 60% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc and the rest a blend of other permitted varieties, fermented and aged in 500- and 600-liter oak barrels, it boasts a flamboyant, exotic personality that I prefer to enjoy in its first several years." (95 pts.)

JD97 Jeb Dunnuck August 28, 2018

"One of the finest whites made in the vintage is unquestionably the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige Blanc from Janasse. Based on 70% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc and the rest a mix of varieties, vinified and aged in demi-muids (there are only two barrels), it has rock star notes of white peaches, caramelized citrus, white flowers, spice, and subtle tangerine-like exotic notes. It’s a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated white that has vibrant acidity, perfect balance, and a great, great finish. There are few Rhône whites better than this beauty. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades." (97 pts.)

VN96 Vinous Oct 2018

"Light yellow-gold. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, along with suggestions of honey, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Concentrated, palate-staining poached pear, Meyer lemon and honeysuckle flavors are given spine by a core of juicy acidity. The mineral and floral notes drive a strikingly persistent finish that leaves a hint of bitter pear skin behind. This one’s definitely built for the long haul." (96 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.
