“The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve is actually just under 50% Grenache. Raspberries and cherries are accented by hints of cedar (it's aged in demi-muids, 20% of which are new) on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is silky and lush, rich yet airy. The finish lingers elegantly, picking up hints of baking spices and licorice.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Limpid ruby-red. An assertively perfumed, expansive bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry preserves, exotic spices and incense, with bright floral and mineral nuances emerging as the wine opens up. Utterly stains the palate with sweet raspberry preserve, cherry pie, allspice, candied licorice and lavender flavors that suavely convey both power and finesse. Smooth, harmonious tannins build very slowly through the floral- and spice-dominated finish which shows absolutely no rough edges. This wine is shaping up to be monumental. (aged in demi-muids for 18 months)” - Vinous

“Including more Mourvèdre than normal (it was a good year for Mourvèdre), the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Reserve is nearly equal parts Grenache and Mourvèdre brought up all in demi-muid (there's a tiny amount in amphora). Beautiful notes of black raspberries, kirsch, crushed rocks, garrigue, and cured meat all flow to a full-bodied, powerful 2018 with building tannins, remarkable purity of fruit, and a blockbuster finish. It's going to rank with some of the top wines in the vintage.” - Jeb Dunnuck
