Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate: “The 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée hits the standard assemblage: 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 10% “others.” Still in cask at the time of my visit, it has expressive floral and garrigue notes, plus hints of star anise layered over a base of black cherries. Full-bodied, deep and rich, this looks like a vintage to set aside for a while, with at least 15 years of longevity ahead of it.” 94-96/100 pts

Jeb Dunnuck: “The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is a terrific wine, and this is certainly another good vintage for the domaine. Giving up a classic, old-school bouquet of blackberries, currants, iron, bloody meat, and pepper, it’s full-bodied, has terrific purity of fruit, serious tannins, impeccable balance, and a great finish. The cellar is going to be your friend. ” 93-95+/100 pts

Vinous: “Deep shimmering ruby. A highly perfumed nose displays scents of ripe red and dark berries, candied lavender, licorice, smoked meat and white pepper, and a building mineral overtone adds vivacity. Juicy and deeply concentrated yet lively as well, offering alluringly sweet cherry, black raspberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that spread out and become livelier with aeration. Closes youthfully chewy, sweet and extremely long, with slow-building tannins adding shape and solid grip. There’s no Cuvée Da Capo in 2017, incidentally.”  93-94/100 pts
