94 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Highly fragrant aromas of fresh red fruits, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a hint of allspice in the background. Silky, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors and a bracing jolt of blood orange. Very suave, precise Châteauneuf with outstanding finishing lift and thrust and gentle tannic grip. As usual for this bottling, finesse is favored over brute strength, but there's no lack of depth and power here. (Drink between 2018-2028)" 2/15


94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much more concentrated than the traditional cuvée, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, from the Montalivet, La Crau, Palestor, Bois Dauphin lieux-dits, that was aged 85% in foudre and 15% in demi-muids and small barrels. Its deep purple color is followed by fabulous notes of black raspberry, currants, crushed rock and peppery herbs. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, structured and classically put together Châteauneuf that has fresh acidity and no shortage of tannin. Give this beauty 3-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy bottles through 2032." 10/14 "Up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a gorgeous wine that possesses classical notes of ground pepper, cured meats, tobacco leaf and currant fruit. Medium to full-bodied and relatively approachable by this cuvee's standards, with beautiful purity of fruit and fine tannin, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and have an easy 12-15+ years of evolution. Drink 2015-2027. " 10/13
