Wine Advocate

96 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the l'Avenue, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Amiral G is 100% Grenache aged in demi-muids. Unlike the l'Avenue, the Amiral G is more about opulence and power. It's full-bodied, ripe and plush, with impressive layers of black cherries, stone fruit, licorice and chocolate spice cake. Concentrated and chewy on the finish, it has all the ingredients for greatness-and it should get there relatively quickly, then drink well for at least a decade. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes." 8/19


98 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Amiral G. is, as always, all Grenache brought up all in demi-muids. It's unquestionably the most opulent, sexy, and expansive in the lineup, with overflowing notes of kirsch and blackberry fruits, incense, dried garrigue, and spice, full body, and no hard edges. Its incredible opulence and decadence are delivered with no sensation of weight or heaviness. This magical, thrilling beauty needs to be tasted to be believed. It's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15+ years or more." 8/19 "The star of the show in 2017 is the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Amiral G., which is as always 100% Grenache from the pebbly soils next to the estate brought up in demi-muids. Exotic notes of blood orange, dried flowers, spice, black raspberries, and blackcurrants all emerge from this ripe, sexy, downright flamboyant beauty that has sweet tannins and a rocking finish. It's as Grenache as Grenache gets." 8/18
