Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com 17

Apricot, peach, a bit of struck match, honey, stones and white chocolate. Full and fleshy, with low acidity but freshness provided by a bit of reductive bite. Smartly done. (RH) [06/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2020

Robert Parker 96

"Undoubtedly one of the top vintages of this wine, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau features classy notes of crushed stones and black tea to go along with ripe raspberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet silky, there’s more power and richness in La Crau than in Piedlong, yet there’s commensurate elegance and finesse. The wine grows in intensity on the finish without ever seeming heavy or overripe, instead offering hints of tea and licorice." [Joe Czerwinski, 31/08/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035
