RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape boasts scents of roses, raspberries and mint and follows those up on the palate with flavors of cherry, rosemary and thyme. It’s full-bodied and creamy in texture, pairing a lot of green notes with balanced red fruit and a long, silky finish.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Limpid ruby-red. Ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers and a hint of garrigue on the fragrant nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by a snap of spicy white pepper. Supple tannins add gentle grip to a long, spicy finish that echoes the blue fruit note. Aged in a combination of concrete vats and demi-muids.

Where It's From

Region / Rhone

View more wines from 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).

Country / France

View more wines from 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.

While not yet bottled, the 2016 Vacqueyras Les Ceps D’Or appears to be one of the top wines from the appellation. Made from mostly Grenache, with a splash of Mourvèdre, it boasts sensational notes of red fruits, flowers, forest floor, and hints of limestone-like minerality. This medium-bodied, finesse-driven effort has more than a passing resemblance to a Grand Cru Red Burgundy and does everything right. It’s going to drink beautifully for over a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Brilliant ruby. Fragrant aromas of fresh red and blue fruits, spicecake and candied flowers, along with an emerging smoky element. Silky and seamless in texture, offering concentrated and surprisingly energetic black raspberry and boysenberry flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Closes sweet, gently tannic and impressively long, delivering emphatic red fruit and a clinging floral pastille note.
RP90+90–92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The prospective blend of the 2016 Vacqueyras les Ceps d’Or contained an elevated level of carbon dioxide, which made it difficult to evaluate. I expect it will perform better from bottle. It’s full-bodied and concentrated, with a rich mouthfeel and complex spice notes layered over ripe fruit.

Enticing, with bright, engaging raspberry, cherry and red currant fruit infused with gently roasted sandalwood and apple wood, garrigue and licorice root notes. A swath of tobacco underscores the finish, giving this an old-school hint. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,500 cases made, 550 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Made from 50- to 80-year-old vines, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape offers tremendous purity for an entry-level cuvée. Pine and rosemary notes accent bright cherry fruit in this full-bodied, creamy textured and lush example of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The assemblage is 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Bottled in March, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (80% Grenache) was brought up in a mix of concrete (mostly) and foudre. It gives up sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, graphite, candle wax, and spice. This rich, full-bodied, yet seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a powerful, balanced style that’s going to keep for 15–20 years. It’s a gorgeous wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape weighs in at 15.5% alcohol by volume yet doesn’t show any heat. Blueberries, spice, cherries and stone fruit come in full-bodied, velvety waves and finish rich and long. This looks to be a stellar effort while the fruit lasts.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Brilliant red. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri and Moroccan spice scents show impressive vivacity and focus. Sappy, alluringly sweet and precise, offering palate-staining raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes very long and smooth, displaying excellent focus, even tannins and emphatic, floral-tinged persistence.

JD9393 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 19, 2017
A new cuvee that’s from higher elevation vineyards, the 2016 Ventoux Edition 1912M is made from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that I suspect was brought up all in tank. It’s a ripe, sexy, yet concentrated wine that offers lots of black cherries, violets, lavender, raspberry and mineral-driven aromatics. Clean, medium to full-bodied, and with rock-solid mid-palate depth, it’s going to drink beautifully for upwards of a decade, although there’s absolutely no need to delay gratification. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
An entirely destemmed and tank-fermented blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, the 2016 Ventoux Edition 1912M references the height of the famous Mont Ventoux. This is a medium-bodied, almost gulpable red, boasting raspberry and blueberry fruit, light, supple tannins and a clean, refreshing finish. It’s picnic-perfect and could even take a slight chill if desired.

Gorgeous, with warm ganache and steeped plum aromas enlivened by bright anise and floral hints, leading into a core of raspberry, blackberry and plum fruit that is pure and racy through the lengthy finish. Dense but sleek, showing great cut and drive. Best from 2020 through 2045. 56 cases imported.
RP96+96+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
I tasted the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape le Secret de Sabon blind, alongside the other 2016s from this fine estate, and failed to discern a huge difference between it and the impressive Prestige or Reserve bottlings. I don’t doubt that time will prove my rating to be conservative, hence the + sign. Winemaker Didier Négron retained some stems in this cuvée, and they show for the moment in its slightly herbal-minty notes, but they’re balanced by ripe Grenache fruit that suggests apricot and plum. Lavender and thyme join in on the creamy, lush finish of this full-bodied but elegant offering.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Lurid ruby. Ripe red berries, cherry liqueur and hints of musky herbs, vanilla and potpourri on the highly perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Palate-staining Chambord and cherry flavors show excellent clarity, supple texture and a hint of spicecake that builds slowly as the wine opens up. The energetic, seamless, impressively long finish repeats the floral and red fruit notes, while rounded tannins add shape and gentle closing grip.
