Decanter (95 points):"Paul and Vincent Avril, a father and son team, established themselves as one of the finest producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Despite being predominantly Grenache, it is reminiscent of an elegant northern Rhône Syrah with the texture of a Pinot. With a medium bodied intensity, it has a beautiful red fruit expression with some savoury notes. Harmony, finesse and elegance are probably the three words that best describe this beauty. One for the cellar."
Wine & Spirits Magazine (95 points):
"The fruit for this red is fully destemmed, the parcels blended together and vinified without any new oak, coming together in a 2014 that’s exceptionally vivid. You might imagine that you can taste the cool nights at the northern end of the appellation in the briskness of the acidity and crisp tang of the red-berried fruit; you might also perceive the warmth in other quarters, as well as Avril’s love for mourvèdre, in the bass notes of earth and spice. Or you may just want to let the wine wash over you in all its intoxicating scent and silky texture, and breathe in its energy."
