(WA 96-98 points) Rich, full-bodied and creamy-textured while simultaneously appearing almost weightless, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Saintes Vierges looks even better than last year. Cola, spice and stone fruit notes provide plenty of flavor interest, lingering on the long, lush finish. - Joe Czerwinski

Mineral-accented cherry and raspberry preserve scents show excellent clarity and suggestions of garrigue and allspice. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry compote and floral pastille flavors and a spicy kick of white pepper. The floral nuance carries through an impressively long finish framed by smooth, interwoven tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Saintes Vierges offers more garrigue, lavender, and spice, and has fabulous complexity in its aromatics. Possessing lots of black cherry and raspberry fruits, medium to full body, and beautiful elegance, it’s already hard to resist yet will be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age and drink nicely for decade or more.
