The 2015 reds from these two brothers are some of the gems in the vintage. Similar to the classic cuvée, except with another level of concentration and elegance, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with classic, Provençal notes of black cherries, cured meats, toasted spice and garrigue. Full-bodied, elegant, seamless, yet stacked and pleasure bent, it will shine from the get go and cruise for a decade or more.

92-94 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 227 - Oct 2016)

Vivid ruby. Spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, lavender and white pepper, backed by a subtle hint of garrigue. Fresh, expansive and appealingly sweet, offering palate-caressing black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen on the back half. Shows depth as well as energy and finishes with very good focus and sneaky tannins that blend smoothly with the plush fruit.
