Wine Advocate 96 - The blockbuster styled 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père (98% Grenache and 2% Cinsault) put a smile on my face and offers full-bodied, layered, decadent notes of kirsch, blackberries, dried stones/earth and lavender. It’s a big wine, yet stays balanced, silky and even elegant on the palate, with notable tannic grip. It will keep for 15+ years. Range: 94-96
Wine Spectator 94 - Lush and silky in feel, with creamed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors gliding atop a very refined structure. Light anise, rooibos tea, bergamot and mulled blood orange notes deliver waves of nuance through the finish. Seductive. Best from 2019 through 2035.
A nice red color with shiny highlights. On the nose, this Chateauneuf-du-Pape spreads spiced aromas. It has a smooth and delicate mouthfeel. This wine matches perfectly with game, grilled rib roasts, meats in sauce and cheese. Blend: 98% Grenache, 2% Cinsault
