Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (91 points):
"The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is an intense, powerful wine that shows a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish. That said, it's still a fine effort, bursting with scents of garrigue and loaded with red plums. The tannins are supple, so there's no need to age this one."

Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a vibrant ruby color as well as an elegant, classic, pure style that just begs to be drunk. Garrigue, dried herbs, dried flowers, currants and kirsch-like aromas and flavors all emerge from this outstanding beauty that can be drunk today with plenty of pleasure or cellared for a decade.
