Critical Acclaim

SP94 Wine Spectator Nov 30, 2017

"Lush and inviting, with the ripe plum, blackberry and cassis profile typical of the vintage, all backed by polished structure and mouthwatering anise, black tea and fruitcake flavors. Long and fresh through the finish. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made." (94 pts.)

RP93+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016

"The deep ruby-colored 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee Du Papet (70% Grenache and 15% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah) is the flagship of the estate and comes from four different terroirs: Bois Dauphin, la Crau, Montalivet and Pied de Baud. It’s only partially destemmed and aged 90% in foudre and 10% in demi-muids. It’s a classic and old school as they come and has beautiful notes of cured meats, pepper, Provençal spices, blackcurrants and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with a stacked mid-palate, it should come in behind the off the charts 2010 and 2007, but should match the 2012 and 2009. It’s a beautiful wine that will have decades of longevity." (93–95+ pts.)

VN93 Vinous Mar 2017

"Deep ruby. Pungent aromas of ripe red fruit, licorice, potpourri and black cardamom carry a bright mineral overtone. Pliant, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors, a hint of spicecake and impressive back-end energy. Fine-grained tannins add shape and gentle grip to an extremely long, floral- and spice-driven finish." (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.
