THE WINE ADVOCATE - ROBERT PARKER
92/100 - Gigondas 'Louis Bernard' 2016
'Hints of garrigue accent ripe cherry and stone fruit aromas, while the full-bodied palate is creamy and supple in texture. It's already so drinkable, so sexy, that I question its ability to age, so enjoy it over the next 6-7 years'.
91-93 - Châteauneuf du Pape 'Domaine la Crau des Papes' 2016
'This full-bodied wine is a fine effort from the widely distributed négociant. Garrigue, tea and floral notes accent raspberry and cherry fruit in this silky-textured wine, which remains lively and fresh through the long finish'.
89-91 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Louis Bernard' 2016
'offers hints of anise and cherry on the nose. A full-bodied blend, creamy and lush on the palate, easing into notes of mocha and black tea on the finish.' Drink 2015-2025
