Score 95/100 · Decanter, Feb 2021

Darkly coloured, this has an elegant, harmonious, vinous aromatic display of liquorice, lilies and blood. Full-bodied, but reined in, without too much fat on the tongue underpinned by a deep, tight tannic weave and piercing acidity. This has genuine depth and intensity and will take on complexity in time. Considerably more textural depth than most of its peers in this vintage. You could drink it now, but hold until 2026 if you can. Fermented and aged in concrete. (Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018 in bottle: the top 50 wines)
