Media Reviews

John Livingstone-Learmonth

red robe, bright. The bouquet is marked by plum fruits, raspberry airs with plentiful mixed herbs, thyme, lavender, licorice; the palate swoops in well on the attack, is full of beans with a good filling of tight, smoky, mineral content. Its tannins are energised, busy - this is long and properly fuelled, a real child of the garrigue, a good wild side to it. The aftertaste produces iron-blood, rocky fissure influences. It has strong character, like its galet stone covered plateau. From 2028. 2053-55 5 stars

Joe Czerwinski

Tasted as a tank sample of the final blend, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau is a blend of approximately 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties, with about 30% whole bunches used in the ferments. Marked by ripe cherries and hints of complex garrigue notes on the nose, it`s full-bodied but also really elegant, with fine-grained, silky tannins, ample concentration and a long, surprisingly crisp finish. 93-95 points
