Winemaker's Notes

Mainly Grenache with a proportion of Syrah and Mourvedre.

The color is an intense crimson-red. On the nose, complex and subtle, blackcurrant and plum followed by roasted coffee and cinnamon, cherry, morello cherry. The palate opens into spicy (licorice) and fruity aromas.

Critical Acclaim

"A dark, slightly brawny style, with fig, black currant paste and licorice root notes pushed by a broad swath of tannins. The tarry-edged finish lets some lavender and violet notes peek in to offset the muscular profile. Still, this shows more guts than finesse. Drink now through 2019."
91 Points

"The largest production wine is the Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine, and the 2007 is an elegant effort displaying plenty of black cherry, raspberry, loamy soil, pepper, and mineral notes. Medium to full-bodied and pure with a lovely texture as well as an easy-to-appreciate style, it is substantial and well-balanced, suggesting it will age for 8-10 years."
