Critical Acclaim

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

"A beautiful effort that’s dedicated to the importer Robert Kacher’s son Alex, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Alex, a blend of Grenache and Mourvedre, offers beautiful aromatics of black cherry, new leather, licorice and hints of vanilla-laced spice. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, rich, layered and beautifully fruited Châteauneuf du Pape that has a supple, balanced profile, good concentration and plenty of length. It’s an outstanding bottle of wine that can be consumed anytime over the coming 7–8 years." (91 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2014

"Solid, with a juicy beam of raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit and ganache flavors coursing along, carried through the finish by a pastis note. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases imported." (89 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.
