Louis Bernard Reviews

Score: 90 | September 1, 2016 | Wine Enthusiast

As demand for Châteauneuf-du-Pape has crept up over the years, so has the price of this bottling. It’s still a reasonable value in a silky, full-bodied wine to drink in its youth. A hint of parsley-like green accents gently warmed raspberry compote, all framed by vanilla and mocha. — J.C.

Year's Best Rhone
Red cherry flavors ring out with bell-tone clarity in this wine, herbal notes edging the ripe, juicy flavors. It feels cool and fresh, with a little vanilla and spice to smooth over the stony flavors beneath the fruit.

Best Buy
This is tart and juicy, with rose scents and black raspberry flavors carried by brisk acidity. Give it a light chill and bring it to a cookout; it will match everything from the burgers to the vegetable sides.

This well known négociant has turned in a sold effort. The nose is slightly herbal, but with attractive black-pepper shadings, while the fruit flavors favor dark skinned plum. Drink this medium-bodied, supple wine over the next few years. —J.C.
