A total stunner, with a long, pure beam of raspberry and red currant coulis streaming through, flanked by light violet, iron and incense notes before picking up lilting rooibos tea and rose petal accents on the finish. The fruit never fades, and there’s perfectly embedded acidity weaving everything together. A dreamy wine. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France. — J.M.

Amazingly perfumed and floral, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve is a striking wine, drawn from the sandy lieux-dits of La Guigasse and Pignan. The blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre yields plenty of refined cherry and stone fruit elements, silky tannins and great elegance on the long finish. It's not the biggest kid on the block, just one of the best looking. What a pretty wine! - Joe Czerwinski

The purity of fruit here is impossible to ignore. Dark in color, balanced, fresh and lively, the wine has concentration of flavor, elegance and freshness, with a luscious, sensuous texture and a spicy, mineral character... The purity of fruit here is impossible to ignore. Dark in color, balanced, fresh and lively, the wine has concentration of flavor, elegance and freshness, with a luscious, sensuous texture and a spicy, mineral character. This is quite a strong result here. The wine is produced from a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvedre.

(93-95 points) Youthful violet. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe blueberry, Indian spices, candied lavender and sandalwood, and a zesty mineral overtone gains strength as the wine stretches out. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet red and blue fruit flavors that show impressive depth as well as vivacity, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The extremely long, floral-driven finish is given shape by fine-grained tannins that are quickly absorbed by the intense, concentrated fruit. - Josh Raynolds

The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Réserve checks in as a classic blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre that was brought up all in 600-liter demi-muids. It has a perfumed, elegant, full-bodied style in its black raspberry, passion fruit, orange blossom and floral aromas and flavors. With gorgeous tannin, impeccable balance and solid freshness, it's reminiscent of the 2011 and ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years.

Just over half grenache, the balance is mourvèdre. This delivers spicy, brash and assertive dark berries, as well as pepper and dark stony aromas. The palate exudes creeping, dark plum-flavored fruit. Long tannins. Best... Just over half grenache, the balance is mourvèdre. This delivers spicy, brash and assertive dark berries, as well as pepper and dark stony aromas. The palate exudes creeping, dark plum-flavored fruit. Long tannins. Best from 2022.

55% Grenache, 45% Mourvèdre. Seductive rose, clove and cedar spice. Full but not heavy. Very fine tannins and bright raspberry acidity. Like a still lake – smoke on the water. A polished, pure and potent modern expression.
