Wine Spectator 92
Juicy and ripe, featuring layers of plum, red currant and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors, lined liberally with sage, bay leaf and tobacco hints. Reveals a flash of brick dust on the finish, which shows good minerally cut. Very solid, with a pleasant old-school hint. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2030.
James Suckling 90
Very ripe and a little rustic but full and chewy with a chunky and rich aftertaste. Hot stones and ripe fruit. A blend of 50% grenache, 40% syrah and 10% mourvèdre.
Complex nose of plums and black cherries with a hint of cocoa and cloves. Full and well-balanced on the palate, showing extreme finesse and remarkable length.his Châteauneuf will pair nicely with duck in green pepper, guinea fowl or pheasant, and will be at home with any festive fare.
Blend: 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre
