Winemaker's Notes

The Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Tradition is a wine of balance and elegance. On the nose, complex aromas of red fruit and spices. Soft and fresh tannins coat the palate with a long and persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Excellent, with a similar, fruit-loaded personality, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape displays abundant blackberry, red currant, licorice and toasted spice notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, pure and polished profile on the palate. Always approachable in its youth, it’s a no-brainer purchase and will drink nicely for over a decade. Drink now-2024.

Range: 90-92 Points "
92 Points

"Inky ruby. Ripe blackberry and blueberry on the fragrant nose, with hints of fresh flowers and pipe tobacco adding complexity. Sappy dark berry and candied cherry flavors show impressive depth and a smooth, velvety texture. Open-knit and very attractive already, but with good spine and structure as well. Finishes sweet and supple, with excellent persistence and a hint of candied flowers."
