Wine Spectator 93
"Solid, with a ripe core of raspberry and plum pâte de fruit flavors that sparkles with detailed anise, apple wood and sweet tobacco notes. Has weight and depth, but the acidity is fresh, allowing this to stretch out through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2030. 900 cases made. –JM"

Vinous Media 93
"Vivid ruby. Sharply focused black raspberry, cherry pit, potpourri and garrigue scents pick up a bright, smoky nuance with air. Nicely concentrated raspberry and floral pastille flavors are given spicy bite by a suggestion of white pepper. Fine-grained tannins come in slowly to add shape and grip to the strikingly long, vibrant, floral-driven finish. This is quite a graceful wine for the vintage, and while it should drink well young, it will also age well on its balance. -- Josh Raynolds"

Wine Advocate 92
"In marked contrast to the tannic 2015, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a forward, charming version of this cuvée, boasting delicate floral aromas and ripe cherry and stone fruit flavors. Full-bodied and creamy in texture, it shows no hard edges but delivers plenty of charm and finesse for drinking over the next 10-12 years. It's a classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah."

James Suckling 92
"Extremely impressive ripe white peach and melon fruits with a flinty edge. The palate has a saline, mineral thread. Great weight, presence and depth. Drink now.
