The Wine Cellar Insider 95 - With a dark, red hue to entice you, the wine is fleshy, concentrated, lush and luscious. There is a spicy character and purity to the fruit that is a treat. The finish keeps on going with all its peppery, red and black fruits. This should age quite nicely.
Decanter 94 - Delicious fruit, classic and classy. This demonstrates charm and finesse with a spherical feel. True Châteauneuf, as it should be
Vinous 94 - Deep ruby. Heady, smoke-accented aromas of black and blue fruits, incense and potpourri gain vivacity from a zesty mineral flourish. Densely packed black raspberry and blueberry flavors open up and turn spicier with air. Shows a suave blend of richness and finesse, offering outstanding focus and tenacity, subtle tannic grip and no excess fat. Range: 92-94
Appearance: Deep and shiny red Nose: Notes of red fruits and spices Palate: Very elegant, with fine and structured tannins. Long finish.
