Wine Advocate

95 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “As usual, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin displays more red fruit than the main bottling, being 100% Grenache from sandier soils. Raspberries and cherries appear on the nose alongside subtle hints of garrigue. The full-bodied palate is almost airy in feel, supported by a latticework of silky tannins and bright acids, while simultaneously adding bass notes of dark chocolate and licorice that linger on the finish. It's an impressive effort.” 10/20

Wine Spectator

95 Points, Jim Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "This bursts forth with delicious crushed plum, cherry puree and raspberry coulis notes that stretch out slowly through the lengthy, anise- and black tea–infused finish. Not shy with its fruit, but this has more than enough energy and detail for balance. Best from 2021 through 2038. 504 cases imported." 12/20


94 Points, Matt Walls, Decanter: "This is one of the best wines of the vintage. It has a vinous finesse to the aromatics, full-bodied, very smooth and generous. It very much displays a pure Grenache style, with a great finesse to the tannins and purity of fruit. Voluminous and silky - a lovely superfine tannic weave, like satin, with an inner sucrosité, and the acidity is well balanced. Long, tapered finish. Drink it young in its finesse, or wait. Partially destemmed pure Grenache planted on lieux-dits Chapouin, La Janasse and La Crau, the oldest planted in 1912." 02/21
