The Wine Advocate

Score : (89 - 91)

The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is darker in color than the 2014 and reveals a bright, fresh, crisp style as well as loads of dark fruits, violets and earth aromas and flavors. It shows the cooler nature of the vintage, yet has plenty of richness, ripe tannin and excellent purity.
