Critical Acclaim

VN90 Vinous Apr 2015

"Bright ruby-red. Lively aromas of raspberry and lavender are accented by peppery spices and minerals. Tangy red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors are complemented by a touch of smokiness that builds in the glass. Finishes spicy and long, with an echo of candied flowers and supple framing tannins. This is quite approachable now." (90 pts.)

RP91+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2013

"The 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Premices, which had just been bottled at the time of this tasting, has fantastic ripeness and offers up beautiful Provencal notes of sweet blackberry, currants, toasted spice, cured meats and earthy notes to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Rich, fleshy and textured, it’s another knockout Grenache-dominated blend from this estate. Drink now–2020." (91–93 pts.)

ST90+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2014

"Brilliant ruby. Exotic raspberry preserve, incense and lavender aromas are brightened by vibrant minerality. Offers sweet red berry liqueur and floral pastille flavors of very good freshness and clarity, picking up an exotic blood orange quality with air. Finishes sweet, bright and long, with smooth, slow-building tannins." (90–92 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.
