TASTING NOTES

"Lurid ruby. A heady, expressive bouquet evokes fresh raspberry, cherry compote, potpourri, licorice and Asian spices, while a bright mineral flourish builds in the glass. Sweet, palate-staining red fruit liqueur, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors show outstanding depth as well as vivacity thanks to a core of juicy acidity. Plays power off finesse with a deft hand and finishes incredibly long, sappy and pure; velvety tannins emerge very slowly. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see this monumental wine turn out to be the star of the 2015 vintage in the Rhône Valley, south as well as north." Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Offering more violets, blueberries, black raspberries, crushed flowers and licorice, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and has a seamless, elegant, multi-dimensional texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. Reminding me of the 2006 with its sweet tannin, it needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep nicely over the following two decades. There’s few wines I’d rather have in the cellar and this 2015 looks to be another blockbuster." Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #227
