From a terrific Rhone vineyard unjustly left out of the Chateauneuf du Pape AOC, this is a wine Robert Parker has called "a baby Chateauneuf du Pape," "a poor person's Chateauneuf," and "a serious effort that could easily be mistaken for a Chateauneuf du Pape." This year’s release is even more supple and open than past vintages.  As always, though it delivers loads of rich, ripe, Rhonish fruit - kirsch, cherry, raspberry - along with classic accents of lavender, thyme, black pepper, and black olive. Unlike most Chateauneuf, it's delicious right now and simply a steal at this price.

"What looks to be a beautiful Côtes du Rhône (which should be no surprise coming from this estate), the 2014 Côtes du Rhône Les Champauvins checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, from rolled pebble soils, that was aged 70% in stainless steel (Grenache) and 30% in barrel (Syrah and Mourvedre.) Giving up lots of roasted Provençal herbs, garrigue, pepper and currant-like fruit, it is medium to full-bodied, ripe and nicely textured, with impressive purity of fruit. It has outstanding potential and will have a decade of overall longevity."Wine Advocate 88-91 points
