The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape les Quartz is one of the more powerful, structured 2012s and exhibits wonderful black raspberry, creamy licorice, smoked earth and crushed rock/liquid minerality. Medium to full-bodied and classically styled on the palate, with a broad, expansive feel, it has sweet fruit, plenty of tannin and beautiful length. Give it another year or two and drink bottles through 2027.||Made by Bruno Gaspard, with help from Philippe Cambie, this estate continues to make polished, elegant wines that have a slight modern edge, while never losing their Provençal character. Looking at the 2012s, this is a solid vintage for the estate, but I would have loved a touch more mid-palate depth and overall concentration. Nevertheless, the wines are gorgeous, with beautiful fruit, polished tannin and plenty to love. The 2013s are also solid, yet not ground breaking, but that’s the vintage and this team has made the most of it. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
