Châteauneuf-du-Pape – 2019

94 Points

The classic cuvée from this estate, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a winner. Lots of darker cherry and currant fruits as well as ample minerality, new leather, and scorched earth notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, concentrated classic cuvée that has plenty of ripe tannins, the freshness and acidity of the vintage, terrific balance, and the class to evolve for two decades.

Powerful nose that is shrouded in high-quality oak (which doesn't dominate). Huge concentration of dark spice-led fruit, cedary notes and wonderfully supple tannins – a blend of savoury and sweet with nothing overpowering each element. Really tight and compact but packed full of concentration.

Lemon curd and white peach with a honeyed note. Chunky palate with a honeycomb crunch – lots of freshness.

Great purity and serious concentration without overt weight. A very powerful, complete, driving style of wine, big in tannin, acid and alcohol with a long finish.

Tasted blind. Attractive vibrant nose with zippy dark fruits and sweet fragrant tobacco notes. Firm and fine chalky tannins with a warming ripe mouthfeel but underpinned by good acidity and freshness.

Shows a creamy edge, with a mix of lemon curd, white peach and yellow apple fruit flavors, backed by hints of brioche and macadamia nut. A subtle stony underlay gives it spine on the very stylish and lengthy finish.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape – 2018

This is a rock-solid offering, with a core of dark fresh plum, succulent raspberry and gently steeped blackberry fruit flavors lined with graphite, anise and wood spice accents. Shows solid grip and nice energy for cellaring.

A bright, high-pitched style, with makrut lime, green apple and green melon flavors laced with a jasmine note. A subtle mineral edge provides balance on the finish.

Rasteau Les Argiles Bleues — 2018

Juicy and forward, with a mix of raspberry, cherry and plum notes bouncing through, backed by light-handed licorice and fruitcake accents. A mesquite note curls around the finish.

Fresh and easy-going aromatics, tarragon and violets beneath the fruit. Full-bodied, a little gummy in texture, but there's a good sense of fluidity to the wine. Clearly defined confit citrus on the finish. Not quite as grand as a typical Châteauneuf perhaps but very good. Very drinkable, with a saline finish.

A gorgeous wine, brimming with gently steeped plum, blackberry and açaí berry flavors, while fruitcake, black licorice and black tea notes swirl through. The terrific graphite underpinning keeps everything moving in unison through the finish, with focus and definition.

Rasteau — 2018

Jeb Dunnuck
92 Points

In addition to their brilliant Chateauneuf du Papes, this estate makes two terrific Rasteau. Their 2018 Rasteau offers a medium to full-bodied, fruit-forward, balanced style as well as the more blue fruit character that’s common in the vintage. With classic pepper, earth, and spice notes, it should easily be an outstanding wine.

95 Points - Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018 in bottle: the top 50 wines

I love the nose, there's a dusting of cocoa and a touch of kirsch to the aromas from the oak – all very well balanced and integrated. This is a powerful, concentrated and intense wine - more intense than their Tradition, but you feel the alcohol more, at least at this stage. Otherwise well balanced, with great energy, a good sense of freshness and tension.

94 Points - Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018 in bottle: the top 50 wines

Darkly coloured, deeply fruited - a promising start. Dense, concentrated and fairly tannic but with good freshness and great vibrancy of fruit. This has all it needs to age; it promises to be longer lived than most 2018s. The alcohol is the only thing holding it back from very long ageing - will poke out in time. A very good, classic, fresh clean style, not overly polished, but it has more energy than most in this vintage.

Decanter
96 Points

This is a vivid and bright style without excesses with tannins that are gently grippy and give a sense of persistence to the wine. The use of oak is adept, and really helps to accentuate the ripe, bright fruits, plum, damson, raspberry juice. It has a good length of flavour and is a real joy. Made with biodynamically-grown Grenache (66%), Syrah (12%) and Mourvèdre (12%), the rest being made up of Clairette Rose, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Terret Noir, Picardan, Picpoul Blanc, Muscardin, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Roussanne, Picpoul Gris, Counoise and Clairette!...

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Boisrenard Blanc — 2019

The only 2019 white I was able to taste (the 2018s were also reviewed last year), the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard Blanc is a richer effort, yet still stays chiseled and focused, with classy notes of pear, white flowers, crushed citrus, and hints of honeysuckle. It shows a kiss of salinity on the palate and is medium-bodied, has bright acidity, and a beautiful finish. This is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and will keep for a couple of decades or more in cool cellars.

A smaller production cuvée, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard Blanc offers more richness and depth, with terrific notes of tart pineapple, mulled stone fruits, spice, and a touch of caramelized peach. With medium to full-bodied richness, a touch of background oak, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it’s beautifully done and capable of evolving for over 15 years or more. My money is on it being one of the longest-lived whites in the vintage.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape – 2018

Jeb Dunnuck
91 Points

A classic beauty, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape has textbook notes of red and black currants, black cherries, scorched earth, and roasted garrigue to go with a medium-bodied, lively, elegant style on the palate that’s very much in the mold of the vintage. With solid mid-palate depth and moderate tannins, it’s already approachable, yet this wine will certainly have 10-15 years of prime drinking ahead of it. It’s a terrific, classic cuvée that I would be happy to have in the cellar.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Boisrenard — 2018

Jeb Dunnuck
95 Points

The more limited-production flagship cuvée is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard, which is based on two-thirds Grenache, with the balance mostly Syrah and Mourvèdre. Not far off the style of the classic cuvée, only deeper and richer, it has a smoking bouquet of ripe redcurrants, smoked blueberries, roasted garrigue, ground pepper, and scorched earth. Beautifully concentrated, medium to full-bodied, with building tannins and a great finish, this is one seriously good 2018. It’s worth giving it 2-3 years of bottle age then enjoying over the following 15 years or more.

There are just 4,000 bottles of the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Boisrenard, which comes from 70- to 100-year-old vines. It's mainly Clairette and Roussanne, but includes the other four white varieties authorized in the appellation as well. Vinified and matured in large-format oak, it does show some classy hints of cedar shavings on the nose and a wonderfully slinky, silky texture on the medium to full-bodied palate, both serving to highlight the wine's restrained melon and citrus flavors. Impressively concentrated and balanced...
