2015 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Les Hautes Brusquieres - Cuvèe Speciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1335096 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A masterpiece of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The fruit power leads this wine and lends that effortless sense of power and length that only old vines can muster. Oak adds spice but the blood plum and dark cherry fruits take center stage here. Best from 2020. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My favorite of the multiple cuvées was the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale. It's the most floral and expressive of the Charbonnière 2015s, with scents of garrigue and violets accenting raspberry and cherry fruit. Full-bodied yet supple, it comes to a finely focused, elegant and lingering finish with no apparent heat. It should drink well for up to 15 years. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Gorgeous, with red currant, fig, boysenberry and blackberry paste flavors that run along in unison, while tightly focused graphite, oolong tea and singed anise hints run underneath. Drips with fruit but has energy and persistence, with a mineral echo adding cut on the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A 60/40 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hautes Brusquières reveals a medium ruby color as well as ample notes of strawberries, dried garrigue, and dried flowers. It's medium to full-bodied, elegant and silky on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity. It's elegant and charming, yet not one of the top vintages for this cuvée. Inner quote mark (10/2017)
