Outer quote mark One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010 … (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and Indian spices, with a smoky element emerging with air. Taut and sharply focused on entry, then fleshier and broader in the mid-palate, offering vibrant boysenberry and black raspberry flavors with hints of candied violet, smoked meat and licorice. Finishes spicy and long, with repeating florality and slow-building tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

Outer quote mark A dark, alluring style, with tobacco, chestnut and alder notes surrounding a core of blackberry, plum and cherry fruit. Lots of garrigue details line the finish, showing a warm paving stone hint. Should settle in nicely in the cellar. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Gamey nose. Sweet start and lots of pleasure here. Good lift and the excitement of herbs and spices. A real peacock’s tail of flavour on the end. Sweet and herbal. Still quite a bit of fine tannin. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (5/2017)
