Jeb Dunnick – “Balanced, layered, and rich, the classic 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a great expression of the vintage. Blackberries, cherries, ground herbs, and some pepper notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, layered, traditional wine that’s already drinking nicely, yet will keep for 10-12 years.” (92 Pts)
