Product Description

Grapes are sourced from La Crau, the lieu-dit that is known for the galet roulés, or rounded stones, that cover the vineyard as far as the eye can see. Grapes are partially de-stemmed. Traditional fermentation between 25-35 days in stainless steel cuve and wood cuves (all temperature-controlled). Wine rests in cement tank for 10 months, and then ages for another 12 months in foudres. Wine is bottled unfiltered, after 22 months of aging.

Varietal Composition: 65 Grenache, 15 Mourvedre, 15 Syrah, 5 Cinsault/Clairette/etc.
Appellation: Chateauneuf-du-Pape

96 Points - James Suckling
"A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. Try after 2020." -JS, 8/14/17

95 Points - Wine Spectator
"This has a lovely, perfumy mix of savory, mint, tobacco, blood orange, cherry and bergamot notes all mixed together, carried by silky but ample structure before ending with a long, mineral- and shiso leaf-infused finish. Finely beaded acidity lets everything hang wonderfully. This should expand and cruise in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035. 13,500 cases made.” -JM, 12/15/17

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The flagship wine, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties. It features delicate floral scents and ample cherry and licorice aromas. Somehow, it manages to be full-bodied and almost creamy in texture but without much weight, then it ends powerfully, with a flourish of rich Mexican chocolate on the long, silky finish. It should drink well for up to 20 years." -JC, 10/31/17

(92-94) Points - Vinous Media
"Brilliant ruby-red. A fragrant nose evokes ripe red and dark berries, musky flowers, licorice and white pepper, and a smoky mineral overtone adds vivacity. Juicy and concentrated in the mouth, offering gently sweet cherry, cassis and floral pastille flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. Closes chewy, sweet and very long, with building tannins adding shape and grip. I really like the blend of structure and fruit here." -JR, 3/17
