Professional reviews:

Decanter: “Grown on varied lieux-dits around the appellation on a mix of soils, this was fermented in concrete then aged for 24 months in foudre. All whole bunch, which is evidenced by the pleasantly stemmy aromatics. Very full-bodied and concentrated, savoury despite the oak, with bay leaf and thyme. Very tannic, quite hard on the palate in fact. It’s well balanced despite the alcohol, thanks to its concentration and intensity. It’s an outlying style due to its darkness, hardness and brooding character. It will be fantastic in time however. But wait.” 96/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée is full-bodied but quite approachable and easy to drink, loaded with black cherries and plummy fruit and tinged with licorice. A blend of 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 10% other permitted varieties, it finishes long and silky.” 92-95/100 pts

Jeb Dunnuck: “The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée is a softer, more forward and charming wine that has beautiful dark fruits, ground pepper, violets, and ample classic Pégau meatiness. It doesn’t have the density of a top vintage, yet I love its balance, it has sweet tannins, and it’s already hard to resist. It’s going to be approachable in its youth but keep for 15+ years.” 92-94+/100 pts
