Parker review

The crème of the lineup and made from the normal blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre, aged in 20% new demi-muids, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reserve is a full-bodied, polished and elegant example of this cuvée that offers lots of toasted spices, black raspberry and cassis fruit, beautifully ripe tannin and a great finish. This is flat out gorgeous! Amazingly perfumed and floral, the 2015 Reserve is a striking wine, drawn from the sandy lieux-dits of La Guigasse and Pignan. The blend yields plenty of refined cherry and stone fruit elements, silky tannins and great elegance on the long finish. It's not the biggest kid on the block, just one of the best looking. What a pretty wine! 97/100 !

Press

Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 93-95/100. Youthful violet. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe blueberry, Indian spices, candied lavender and sandalwood, and a zesty mineral overtone gains strength as the wine stretches out. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet red and blue fruit flavors that show impressive depth as well as vivacity, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The extremely long, floral-driven finish is given shape by fine-grained tannins that are quickly absorbed by the intense, concentrated fruit.
