"91+ Points- Wine Advocate. Aromas of raspberry preserves and crushed mulberries over suggestions of mandarin peel, white pepper and cardamom. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it gives tons of spiced red berry flavor layers with balancing acidity and medium levels of chewy tannins. It finishes long. Drink it now to 2019+."
"92 Pts Wine Enthusiast. This is ripe and muscular without being overly oaky. Cherry fruit is supported by a balanced dose of cedary oak, but the tannins come largely from the fruit, suggesting decent aging potential. The finish is dry, firm and long, further bolstering that impression."
"93 WA A new offering, the outstanding 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Elegance de Jeanne (only 200 cases produced) was made from 108 year-old Grenache vines grown in the famed eastern Chateauneuf du Pape lieu dit called La Crau. Although it possesses the lightest color of these three 2007s, it also has the most concentration and intensity. Sultry, sexy, brash, exuberant notes of black cherries, raspberries, balsam wood, lavender, and licorice soar from the glass of this garish display of 100% old vine Grenache. Beautifully pure, round, full bodied, and dense, it is hard to resist at present, but it should evolve easily for 12 to 15 years."
"94 Pts. Kahn's Staff. 100% Grenache. Intense, deep color with a crimson tint. A gorgeous red fruit bouquet with a sweet, round mouthfeel."
"Pale ruby. Raspberry and strawberry over mineral, white pepper and smoked back ground. Ageing for 10 months in concrete vats creates austere and floral elegant style. Dry, fresh acidity, moderate fine tannins and muscular texture. A medium length pure complex wine."
