Critical Acclaim

RP93 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 24th Sep 2020

"All Grenache from the lieux-dits of la Crau and Font du Loup, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape is relatively light in color, but don’t mistake that for being light or wimpy. Black cherries, red raspberries and hints of plum combine on the nose with hints of garrigue and licorice, while the full-bodied palate is silky and elegant despite being labeled at 15.5% alcohol. There’s ample length and no perceptible heat on the finish, but I’d still opt to enjoy it over its first 6–8 years or so." (93 pts.)

JD93+ Jeb Dunnuck August 16, 2019

"There’s a single foudre of the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape, and it’s all destemmed Grenache from the sandy soils of the Font de Loup and Saint Georges lieux-dits. Kirsch, blackberries, orange zest, and flowery incense notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied Grenache that offers a layered, seamless texture, building tannins, and a great finish. This classic, elegant wine has loads of character and is another example of a great terroir in the hands of incredible winemakers." (93–95 pts.)

SP94 Wine Spectator Oct 7, 2020

"This is really alive, with a burst of kirsch, plum and blackberry notes leading off, followed by waves of black tea, melted black licorice and warm fruitcake. Long and lush through the finish, but maintains detail and energy. Best from 2021 through 2034. 200 cases imported." (94 pts.)

JD93 Jeb Dunnuck October 6, 2020

"Coming from cooler, sandy soils and all Grenache, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape reveals a medium ruby/purple hue to go with perfumed notes of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, flowery incense, and orange blossom. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless texture, ripe, silky tannins, and a great finish. It’s not a blockbuster, but it just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness and has beautiful length on the finish. Enjoy this elegant, nuanced 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape any time over the coming decade." (93 pts.)

Rhone

Located along the path of the Rhone River, the Rhone wine region in southeastern France is beautiful and very productive. It's typically divided into two sub-regions, the Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone, and the wines produced in these sub-regions are very different from one another.

The southern Rhone is warm and dry, and produces robust, full-flavored red wines, oftentimes blends with Grenache used as the primary grape. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is without question the most celebrated town for wine production in the Southern Rhone region.

Meanwhile, the Northern Rhone features a cooler climate and steep-sloped vineyards. Syrah is the dominant red grape, and the wines are typically tannic, deeply colored, and highly acidic wines (which leads them to get better with age).

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
