Joe Czerwinski

Coming from the La Crau lieu-dit, VT`s 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau looks to be another excellent vintage. The aromas are floral and fresh, suggesting roses, tea, raspberries and orange zest. The palate is full-bodied but silky and fine, with delicate spice shadings on the finish creating a particularly elegant impression. 93-95 points

Thw 2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is another elegant, floral example from this vintage. Black raspberries, red currants, peppery garrigue, tons of minerality, and a seaweed note that I always find in this cuvée gives way to a rich, full-bodied, balanced, structured wine that has everything in the right place. With good acidity, ripe, present tannin and plenty of length, it will need 3-5 years of cellaring and keep for 15-20 years. 93-95 points
