Critical Acclaim

"Exotic flavors of anise, licorice and blackberry confiture—along with cocoa, floral and tar notes. Dense, but plush and silky for the vintage, with a raspberry ganache-loaded finish that won't quit. A real beauty. Drink now through 2025."
96 Points

"One can’t speak highly enough of the efforts by proprietress Isabel Ferrando, who has resurrected this well-known estate in Chateauneuf du Pape. This is a beautifully made wine that merits serious attention. The deep purple color of the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is even better than the Auguste Favier, with a few extra layers built in. It is not as intensely Provencal aromatically or flavor-wise, but the pepper, the kirsch liqueur, and the creme de cassis are all there, the wine strikingly concentrated, full-bodied, layered, and voluptuously textured with a blockbuster finish."
95 Points

"A supremely powerful special cuvée that shows intense, rich, sweet fruit over layers of dark, brooding tannins. Black fruit, dried figs and quince flavors combine with spice and pepper and wood tastes to produce a huge, long-lasting wine. Imported by Daniel Johnnes Wines."
93 Points
