Wine SpectatorLovely cedar, roasted vanilla bean, black tea and steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors are well-melded in this version, with good underlying structure. Fine-grained tannins carry the finish. Drink now through 2025
Wine AdvocateAlso showing some dry tannin and savoriness, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve (same blend and elevage as the 2012) gives up meaty, gamey notes of saddle leather, dried garrigue and sweet blackberry fruit. Medium-bodied, with plenty of character and depth, it should be consumed over the coming 8-9 years. Drink now-2021.
