Success of the 2015 vintage is solid in Chateauneuf du Pape. These selections are among the best of the vintage. Not since 2010 has CDP enjoyed great success, and collectors have been snapping them up. Take for example the Domaine St. Prefert Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud – a gorgeous cuvee – 1,000 cases comprised of 60% 80-year old Grenache, 40% 40-year old Mourvedre from the lieux dits Les Serres and Le Crisita; southern and northern respectively, scoring 99 points from the Wine Spectator. Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pegau compares her 2015 with 2010, and a stunning wine indeed. Don't miss this selection, each deserves your attention.


Now that it has been in bottle a while, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is looking even better than I projected based on last year's prebottling sample. It's all violets, cherries, subtle allspice and clove and traditional garrigue notes of lavender and thyme. Full-bodied and rich, it's crazy complex, adding hints of tar and black olives on the long, silky finish. It should evolve beautifully over the next two decades.

96 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 238 - Aug 2018)
