“Simply stated, this is a mind-blowing red wine that must be tasted to believe; reminding us why we fell in love with Chateauneuf du Pape decades ago. We adored the balance of power and irresistible layers of opulent flavors including kirsch, framboise, black cherry, baking spices and a monumentally delicious finish that dazzled with notes of butterscotch. This exotic new release is perfectly balanced, ultra-pure, precise now while the plush tannins bode for aging another decade. Les Clavelles is a single parcel of insanely glorious red fruit from Chateau La Nerthe's historic estate which dates back to the twelfth century. These vineyards are adjacent to Clos du Papes, which is coincidental as this rare bottling reminds us of top vintages (e.g. 2010) from that hallowed estate.” - California Wine Advisors

“All whole-cluster fruit from a single parcel of old Grenache, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Clavelles boasts fascinating notes of cedar, due to its élevage in small oak, ripe cherries and strawberries, resinous herbs and dried spices. For a full-bodied wine, it's remarkably light on its feet and elegant, framed by silky tannins and a lingering, intense finish redolent of strawberries, star anise and allspice.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
