Critical Acclaim:

96 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Blended, but still aging in barrel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape will likely be bottled in March 2019. Brandied cherries and dried spices mark the nose of this full-bodied, plush wine. It's slightly warm, and certainly rich, but it remains fresh and long on the finish. It should be a beauty.


94 Points from James Suckling

Bold and succulent. Ripe, black-fruit aromas with a swathe of spicy-oak and earthy nuances, too. There’s a wealth of plush, brambly, dark-plum and berry flavors in a web of fresh, bright tannins.



94 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

Scheduled to be bottled in October, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as a mix of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 10% each of Syrah and Cinsault. Rounded, beautifully textured, and full-bodied, with terrific complexity in its incense, dried flower, cedarwood, and assorted red and black fruits, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and offer over a decade of prime drinking.


94 Points from Wine Enthusiast

Whiffs of dried sage, bramble, vanilla and spice accent plum and black-cherry flavors in this hedonistic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Rounded and luscious, it has soft acidity and pliant, feathery tannins but maintains a mineral freshness that lingers on the finish. It’s a forward but elegant wine to enjoy now through 2028.


93 Points from Wine Spectator

Features a core of steeped red and black currant and raspberry fruit, inlaid with singed cedar, mesquite and chestnut accents. Shows a grippy edge on the finish, with strong mineral and tobacco components lingering. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2021 through 2035.
