Vintages 2014

The Wine Advocate

Score : (89 - 91)

Still in foudres, the 2014 Chateauneuf du Pape will likely be bottled and released in early 2018, according to Philippe Guigal. It’s a charming version, with pretty cherry aromas and flavors, not as concentrated as either the 2013 or 2015 but still a fine effort for near-term drinking. Joe Czerwinski.
