I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Lucille Avril, and I’ve bought and cellared this cuvée for years (the 2007 is killer juice). Big, structured and tannic, yet with sensational purity and classic notes of blackberries, raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, it expands on the palate, is impeccably balanced and will be an age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape.

92-95 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 227 - Oct 2016)

Brilliant ruby-red. Powerful, smoke-tinged aromas of dark berries and violet are complicated by subtle floral pastille and garrigue nuances. Fleshy and nicely concentrated, showing very good clarity to the supple red and blue fruit flavors, which are sharpened by a vein of juicy acidity. The floral note repeats on the youthfully tannic finish, which shows impressive energy and closing thrust.
