Critical Acclaim

VN92 Vinous Apr 2015

"Brilliant ruby. Flamboyant aromas of ripe red berries, incense, potpourri and minerals. Supple, fleshy and alluringly sweet, with intense red fruit flavors coating the palate. Smooth, seamless and concentrated but also lively, with velvety tannins giving shape to the long, spice-accented finish." (92 pts.)

SP91 Wine Spectator Nov 15, 2014

"This is well-built, with a strong ganache frame and a racy graphite spine that drives through the core of plum sauce, melted fig and blackberry preserve flavors. Picks up extra notes of Turkish coffee and roasted juniper on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024. 0130 cases imported." (91 pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2014

"There are two Châteauneufs made in 2012, the classique and the Auguste Favier, with no Collection Charles Giraud. The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is another beautiful vintage here, and it offers classic kirsch, blackberry, roasted meats and toasted spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, ripe, layered and seamless style. The tannin here builds on the palate, but is fine and polished. Give this another year or two and enjoy bottles through 2027." (91 pts.)

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

"Brilliant ruby-red. An exotic perfume calls up candied red fruits, Asian spices and fresh flowers. Silky, appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry-cola flavors show impressive vivacity and become spicier with air. Silky tannins build on the supple yet nicely delineated finish." (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.
