Critical Acclaim

"A real blockbuster as well as a massive example of old vine Grenache is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Petits Pieds d’Armand. Only 260 cases were produced in 2010 as the Grenache yields were unusually small in this vintage. However, that has added an extra level of concentration. This wine ratchets up the power, concentration, glycerin, opulence and density, revealing a deep purple color in addition to extraordinarily pure black raspberry, black cherry and cassis flavors intermixed with licorice, spring flowers and incense. The alcohol must be in excess of 16%. This unctuously textured, gorgeously concentrated wine is a monument to old vine Grenache grown in the southern Rhone. It should drink well for 15-20 years."
98 Points

"A very fruit-driven style, with a lovely melange of blueberry, fig, blackberry and boysenberry notes all melded together and framed by light toasty vanilla, anise and alderwood notes. There's a lovely racy feel through the finish, though this keeps the fruit focused rather than overly exuberant. Shows nice vivacity. Best from 2014 through 2028."
94 Points

"Vivid purple. Heady aromas of dark fruit preserves, garrigue, incense and Asian spices, with a strong floral overtone. Lush, palate-staining blackberry and blueberry flavors show outstanding depth as well as energy, picking up sexy floral pastille and spicecake nuances with air. Velvety tannins shape an impressively long, clinging finish that echoes the floral and spice notes. "
