THE WINE ADVOCATE - ROBERT PARKER
"This was an impressive lineup from Louis Bernard;these wines normally represent excellent value and have good distribution". Jeb Dunnuck - October 2016 - Read issue 227.
87-89/100 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Louis Bernard' 2015
'The Châteauneuf du Pape 2015 offers plenty of pretty red fruits (strawberries, raspberries), garrigue and spice in a mediumbodied, elegant and nicely balanced package.'
88/100 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Louis Bernard' 2014
'It is upfront and medium-bodied, with classic Southern Rhône notes of darker fruits, peppery herbs and garrigue. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.'
89-91/100 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Domaine la Crau de Papes' 2015
'Offering more strawberry, garrigue and minerality, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Crau des Papes is full-bodied, beautifully textured and layered, with sweet tannin. Made from a mix of Grenache and Syrah, aged
all in tank, it has outstanding potential.'
90/100 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Domaine la Crau de Papes' 2014
'Lastly, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape La Crau des Papes is even better, with ample strawberry, garrigue, black raspberry and floral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, beautifully textured and with sweet tannin, it’s well worth checking out.'
