Vintages 2011

Score : (89-92)

[...] the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and other permitted varieties) is a great example of the vintage and has an upfront, perfumed, sexy style. Garrigue, incense, kirsch, lavender and black raspberry qualities flow nicely to a medium to full-bodied, rounded supple Chateauneuf du Pape that will drink nicely on release and evolve relatively quickly.
