Description

97 points Jeb Dunnuck
"Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish."

94 points Wine Spectator
"Ripe and expressive, with a lovely display of warmed plum, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors infused with red tea and anise notes. Features a solid mineral note that chimes on the finish, while a roasted apple wood frame keeps it all in line as the fruit takes an encore. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2036. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported."

Jancis Robinson
"80% 80 to 100 year-old Grenache with 10% each of 60 to 80 year-old Mourvèdre and 50 year-old Syrah from La Crau, Les Gardioles, La Janasse, Coste Froide and Bois Dauphin, half whole bunch, aged for 12 months in one-year-old barrels and then 12 months in foudre. Cask sample.
Deep crimson with a purplish tinge. Heady, sweetly perfumed. Really round and seductive. In this wine the fruit trumps the tannins (which are ripe and certainly there) and I feel I could almost drink it tonight. Very subtle with very luscious mulberry fruit and a bit of alcohol on the end. 17/20 points."
