Critical acclaim

Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Limpid ruby. A highly expressive bouquet evokes ripe red berries, potpourri and peppery spices, and a smoky mineral nuance gains strength as the wine opens up. Offers concentrated raspberry liqueur and spicecake flavors and deeper licorice and bitter chocolate flavors sharpened and given spine by juicy acidity. Effortlessly plays richness off elegance and finishes sweet, spicy and impressively long, with velvety tannins lending shape and grip."

The Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is more focused and tight than the charming Piedlong cuvee and possesses stony, mineral, and salty characteristics as well as notes of red currants, Provençal garrigue and dried pepper. Medium-bodied, firm, moderately concentrated and elegant, it’s not the greatest example of this cuvee, but should still have 10-12 years of longevity. Give it a few years in the cellar."

Food Pairing: Lobster, Crab, Sushi, Veal
