93 Points, Wine Spectator - Gorgeous, pure floral, raspberry and kirsch aromas lead the way, followed by intense cherry and blackberry fruit allied to substantial yet silky tannins. The long mineral- and shiso leaf-tinged finish lets the elements drape beautifully.
92 Points, Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby. Intense, floral aromas of raspberry and lavender, with subtle star anise and incense nuances adding complexity. Juicy, finely etched red berry flavors show very good power and focus, with a late note of licorice adding depth. The supple, sweet finish is nicely firmed by fine-grained, harmonious tannins.
92 Points, Robert Parker - The classic 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape checks in as a destemmed blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah that spent 18 months in barrel. Offering up impressive kirsch, black raspberry, dried spices and garrigue, this medium to full-bodied 2012 has an elegant, seamless texture, fantastic purity and sweet tannin that emerges on the finish. There’s certainly a polished, slightly modern feel here, but it’s perfectly balanced and loaded with character. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 8-10 years.
A dark ruby colour. The nose reveals a subtle blend of raspberry and cocoa bean and smoky gaining ascendancy. On the palate, the attack is fresh with a good concentration of menthol tannins, which evolves into graphite notes. To drink from his youth until 20 years.
