Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com 17.5

Combines garrigue and petrichor in a wonderfully terroir-y sort of way. Strong southern accent, that’s for sure. The fruit is ripe without being pushy. Definitely shows the hand of a master. Finishes with a touch of beef and bacon. (RH) [01/09/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035

Robert Parker 97

"Bottled in May, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a floral, elegant, unbelievably complex wine. Roses and violets, cherries and stone fruit, cinnamon and allspice and more are carried across the full-bodied yet almost weightless palate, finishing in a swirl of silky tannins and lingering spice. Drink it over the next two decades." [Joe Czerwinski, 31/10/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035

Vinous 94-96

(raised in foudres) Deep ruby. Hugely aromatic red and dark berry, potpourri and floral scents are underscored by smoky minerality and an exotic suggestion of Asian spices. Sappy, focused and impressively deep yet lively, offering alluringly sweet raspberry, cherry compote and spicecake flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of blood orange. Puts on weight and spreads out steadily with air, acquiring a succulent herb note that carries through the strikingly long, mineral-laced, gently tannic finish. This beauty is shaping up to be among the standouts of this extremely successful vintage. [Josh Raynolds, 03/01/2017]
