Critical Acclaim

RP91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Imperiale is 95% Grenache (the rest is a mix of permitted varieties) that comes from three terroirs: Senechaux, la Crau (the northern part) and Pied Long. It’s sees a touch of whole clusters during fermentation and is aged all in concrete tanks. Plums, blueberries, graphite, crushed rocks and hints of spring flowers all flow from this medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and elegant Châteauneuf du Pape that shows the more streamlined, elegant style of the vintage, yet is far from simple or mid-weight. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.
