Critical Acclaim

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Aug 2018

"Sourced from the lieux-dits of Les Brusquières and Cabrières, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% other varieties. Tasted blind, it’s a big, full-bodied, lush wine. Powered by bold cherry and stone fruit, it shows hints of pepper and clove complexity, plus vibrant citrus zest notes on the long, electric finish. Wow." (96 pts.)

VN93 Vinous Jul 2018

"Brilliant ruby. Red berry liqueur, lavender and incense scents, along with hints of allspice and smoky minerals. Silky and seamless in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, cherry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that deepen steadily with air. Smoothly balances richness and finesse and finishes with bright, mineral-driven persistence, sneaky tannins and strong persistence." (93 pts.)

SP95 Wine Spectator Web only – 2018

"Intense, with a racy and focused beam of raspberry coulis, cherry preserve and blackberry paste flavors driving through, laced with mouthwatering anise, black tea and singed apple wood notes. The long, graphite-edged finish shows terrific energy. Best from 2020 through 2040. 224 cases imported." (95 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.
