Vintages 2016

BETTANE+DESSEAUVE

Score : 16.5/20

Savoureux et épicé, bouche ronde de grande finesse, encore un peu jeune même s’il goûte sur sa gourmandise de fruits noirs. 

 

JEB DUNNUCK

Score : (92-94)

From one of the great vintages for the region going back decades, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape boasts a deep, layered, powerful style yet has terrific purity and elegance. Notes of black raspberries, scorched earth, and peppery herbs all emerge from this promising, seriously endowed barrel sample that’s going to be well worth your time and money.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (92 - 94)

Full-bodied, lush, velvety in texture and packed with fruit and garrigue, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape should prove to be Guigal’s best Chateauneuf du Pape to date when it’s released in 2020.

 

WINE SPECTATOR

Score : 91

Solidly built, featuring cherry and plum paste notes, laced with stony minerality, tobacco and garrigue accents. This has grip but remains well-integrated, ending with subtle persistence on the cedar-tinged finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,500 cases imported. — JM
