cherry fruit. Singed wood and warm stone notes hang in the background, leading to an echo of garrigue on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2024. 2,500 cases imported." –JM

ROBERT PARKER 89 POINTS: "Leading off and a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is a solid, workhorse-styled effort that offers up notions of sweet red cherries, licorice, garrigue and earthy notes on the nose. Medium-bodied, lively and fresh, with an overall elegant, supple profile, it won’t make old bones, yet is a joy to drink and will dish out plenty of pleasure over the coming 5-6 years. Drink now-2019."

eROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS: "A step up, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is a smoking wine that’s up with the top wines of the vintage. Read More...
Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, it has perfumed kirsch, black raspberry, licorice, dried flowers and roasted meat-like qualities soaring from the glass. As with the Reserve Auguste Favier, this has put on more mid-palate weight, has beautifully sweet fruit, and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. It can be consumed anytime over the coming 10-12 years."

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS: "This features a dark, warm ganache spine that holds the cherry compote, plum sauce and steeped currant fruit together. Smoldering charcoal and tobacco notes line the finish. Shows solid muscle for the vintage. Best from 2015 through 2025. 650 cases made." –JM

I remember. Giving up loads of blackberry, licorice, smoked herbs and toasted spice, it possesses medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and a beautiful core of sweet fruit. Already drinking beautifully, it will have a solid 10-12 years of ultimate longevity."

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS: "Shows good depth for the vintage, with a full, fleshy feel to the cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit, lined with singed mesquite, pepper and warm paving stone notes. A flicker of shiso leaf appears on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. 915 cases made." –JM

and cassis-styled fruit, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources is medium-bodied, beautifully textured and possesses fine, polished tannin on the finish. Slightly more rounded and textured than the Les Hauts Lieux, this beauty comes from sandy soils (the same region where the Reserve comes from) located on a north-facing slope, at a slightly lower elevation than where the Les Hauts Lieux comes from. Perfumed, complex and rich, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years. Drink now-2023."

rock star in the vintage and checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the balance Counoise and Cinsault, which was aged all in foudre. Harvested very late (and this estate normally harvests on the early side) and not wrapping up until October, it possesses gorgeous purity, with mineral-tinged aromas of blackberry, currants, licorice, ground herbs and violets all soaring from the glass. An all-around powerful, structured and rich 2011, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific acidity and big tannin, it will be one of the longest-lived wines in the vintage. Give it 2-3 years in the cellar, and drink bottles through 2026. Drink 2017-2026."

a polished, classy style in its blueberry, plum sauce, toasted spice and licorice-dominated bouquet. Seeming to show some oak (although I believe this is aged all in tank) and some modern qualities, it stays beautifully balanced and is medium to full-bodied, thrillingly pure, seamless, and has building tannin that emerge on the finish. It’s a fabulous expression of Grenache to drink over the coming decade."

decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well."

is a blend of 80% tank-aged Grenache and 20% barrel-aged Mourvedre. A big, massive wine, with decadent roasted herbs, black and red fruits, licorice and scorched earth, this full-bodied, mouth-filling and brilliantly concentrated effort doesn’t lack for texture or richness, yet remains fresh and very drinkable. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Drink 2014-2032."

WINE SPECTATOR 97 POINTS
- "A stunner, with a gorgeous cassis aroma that soars from Read More...
the glass, reinforced by a core of cassis, cherry and plum pâte de fruit, hoisin sauce, warm ganache and well-roasted apple wood notes. Hefty, but suave and seamless. The finish lets graphite and licorice elements glide through. The structure is dense, polished and perfectly integrated, resulting in lovely length. Should be a beauty after cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2032."

eROBERT PARKER 95-98 POINTS - "Tasted from multiple foudres, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape is stunning! Showing surprising depth and concentration in the vintage, with full-bodied richness and texture, all of the samples showed perfumed, complex aromatics, fantastic mid-palates and serious back-end structure. Less forward than the 2011, with plenty of oomph, it will most likely require short-term cellaring to come around, and have a broad drink window."

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautifully Provencal effort that gives up loads of black licorice, savory spice, leather Read More...
and sweet black cherry aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and already approachable, it nevertheless has the tannic structure and concentration to evolve for 10-15 years.

This 120 acres estate, under the leadership of the Maurel brothers and oenologist Philippe Cambie, continues to fashion some of the most profound wines on the planet. Their 2012s, which is a vintage compared to a mix of 2009 and 2010 by Vincent, fall just short of what was accomplished here in 2010 and 2007, but are incredible wines that certainly rank at the top of the vintage. Readers should also check out the retrospective from this estate in Issue 214 to get an idea how these wines evolve."

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "A dark, loamy style, with warm tar and espresso notes underscoring the core of black Mission fig, Black Forest cake and steeped plum fruit. Juniper and singed alder hints add texture and contrast on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2027. 500 cases imported." –JM

VINOUS MEDIA 90-92 POINTS - "Opaque ruby. High-pitched raspberry, floral pastille and Asian spice aromas are deepened by notes of cola and licorice. Deeper and darker in character on the palate, offering sweet cherry and black raspberry flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Finishes silky and long, with exotic spice and floral qualities and smooth, well-knit tannins." -- Josh Raynolds

The famous appellation of Chateauneuf de Pape in the Southern Rhone has had a string of excellent vintages, but encountered challenges during the 2013 growing season. The spring was one of the coldest and wettest in recent years, greatly affecting the quality of the Grenache grapes, which are the dominant grapes in most Southern Rhone wines. As a result, many producers are not bottling any Chateauneuf de Pape wine from the 2013 vintage. Fortunately there are some excellent 2012s still available, which Chateauneuf fans would be wise to stock up on.

An excellent example comes from the terrific producer, Clos Saint Jean. Brothers Pascal and Vincent Maurel make delicious wines sourced from old vines of the famed La Crau vineyard. In fact, the Clos Saint Jean bottling has been one of our best-selling Chateauneuf de Pape wines for the past several years. The critics have spoken and gave very consistent scores and praise for this delicious wine. This wine delivers full-bodied, hedonistic pleasure in a glass and should not be missed!

VINOUSMEDIA 91 POINTS: "Bright violet color. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, lavender and garrigue, with a smoky nuance adding complexity. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering sweet blueberry and cherry compote flavors that become more lively with air. Finishes juicy, supple and long, with sneaky tannins adding shape and folding smoothly into the wine's fruit." -- Josh Raynolds

Given its overall polish and balance, it’s a joy to drink even now, yet should hit its stride in another 2-4 years and have 15+ years of overall longevity."
