‘Tons of garrigue, Provençal spice, pepper, and kirsch liqueur aromas and flavors emerge from the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Barbe Rac, a quintessential 100% Grenache revealing full-bodied richness, the ripe, concentrated style of the vintage, building tannins, and a great finish. All Grenache that was destemmed and aged 18 months concrete, it’s going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and cruise for 15-20 years in cold cellars.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 96/100

‘Tons of forest berries and damson plums, but also dried herbs. An extremely expressive wine with great fruit, very fresh and slightly crunchy tannins, plus energy that makes it leap and bound across the palate. Stunning licorice and mineral finish that proves Chateauneuf can be an exciting and elegant wine. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 96/100

‘Ripe and alluring, with a silky feel despite ample depth to the waves of cassis, bitter cherry and black berry fruit flavors. The finish boasts garrigue, singed cedar, dried anise, sanguine and black tea notes. A beauty for the cellar. Best from 2024 through 2036.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 96/100

‘Cask sample. Tasted blind. Red-cherry laden nose with a waxy fresh note. Sweet and appealing with leather, currant and spice. On the ripe side and has a sweet, confected finish. 2023-2030’ – Alistair Cooper MW, JancisRobinson.com, 15/20
