Score: 94 | April 1, 2013 | Wine Spectator
Infused with a limestone tautness, this red exudes cherry, mineral and spice flavors on an athletic frame. Licorice and vanilla accents grace the lingering finish, along with a sweet black cherry note. Almost seamless now, this should only get better. Shows great tension and interplay of the elements. Best from 2015 through 2032.

Silky and elegant, wearing its sweet fruit and floral notes with style and grace. Firmly structured, but all the components are in the right.

Shows striking intensity, density, focus and layers of flavor, with tiers of mocha, blackberry, mineral, black licorice and melted chocolate. The finish sails on, retaining focus and persistence.

Remember when all Châteauneufs were priced like this? Now this is entry-level pricing, yet the wine is very good, delivering a complex, harmonious blend of leather, earth, spice and plum notes. It’s soft enough to drink now and over the next few years.

This is silky and elegant, wearing its sweet fruit and floral notes with style and grace. Firmly structured, but all the components are in the right proportion, with fine length. This just needs time. Best from 2014 through 2025.
