2015 Domaine Santa Duc "Le Crau Ouest" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1341218 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My top pick from the outstanding lineup of Santa Duc's 2015 Châteauneufs was the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau Ouest, of which only 200 cases were produced. This pure Grenache offers sumptuous aromas of violets and roses to go along with cherries and licorice. It's full-bodied, intense, deep and long, with tannins that properly support the wine's complexities rather than overwhelming them. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Outer quote mark The smallest production cuvée is the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau Ouest, and it's made from 100% Grenache, all from the la Crau lieu-dit, that was completely destemmed and aged all in terracotta jars for 18 months. It's the most classic of the lineup, with lots of black cherries, licorice, dusty earth and hints of forest floor. Rich, concentrated and layered, with a great texture, it too is going to keep for 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There's a riper feel in this cuvée, with fluid red berry and red plum fruits. Smoother tannins deliver a nutty, glossy impact. There is good concentration, depth and a layered, seamless feel throughout. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Lurid ruby. Powerful cherry and raspberry liqueur aromas are complicated by intense floral and Indian spice nuances. Sappy, sweet and broad on entry, then tighter in the midpalate, offering juicy, densely packed red and blue flavors that turn sweeter and more energetic on the back half. Shows a suave lavender pastille quality on the impressively persistent finish, which is given shape by smooth, harmonious tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
