Winecellar Insider 96: Silky, elegant, floral and fresh, the sweet kirsch notes come through loud and clear on the nose and palate. Refined and pure, this beautiful wine was produced from 100% old vine grenache.
Parker 94: The 100% Grenache 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan boasts seductive notions of rose petals, herbal tea and raspberry confiture. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is supported by a web of silken tannins and bright acids that bring defining crispness, dustiness and admirable length to the finish, pulling all of the mouthwatering fruit and complex flower-garden notes together. A bit more structured than the Les Hespérides, I expect it will have a slightly longer drinking window while providing similar pleasure along the way.
Livingstone Tankprobe 3 Sterne: dark robe; the bouquet is a deep bundle, a basket of mixed berry fruits, sweet blackberry coulis, hints of crème de menthe, griottes or soaked cherries. It’s a swell opening. The palate is weighty, suave, replete, carries an accentuated ripeness and has a soaked fruits feel to it, mulberry and raspberry. It’s a sipping wine due to its soaked nature. The fruit is pretty pure, if on the dense side. From 2024 – allow it time to start to loosen up. 15°. 6,000 b. €36. 2043-45 Oct 2019
