SKU #1419951 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Intensely ripe layers of blackberry and cherry mingle into coffee, anise and earth in this deeply fruity yet nuanced wine. (AI) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Slightly deeper colored, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mourre des Perdrix comes from the sandy soils not far from the domaine and is 70% Grenache and 15% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's incredibly elegant and nuanced, with smoking notes of black raspberries, cherries, dried flowers, incense, and loamy soils aromas and flavors. Deep and silky, with beautiful purity, it has ripe tannin, no hard edges, and a great finish. It should be bottled by the time this report is published and is a candidate for the finest vintage of the cuvée to date. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix was scheduled to be bottled two days after my visit, so the sample was drawn from the final blend. Although I expect it will close down a bit after bottling, it was singing when I tasted it, featuring red raspberries and cherries, floral and spice notes and a plump, velvety texture. Just delicious stuff. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Darker fruit makes for a compelling and flavorsome impression. Ripe, blood plums are laced with mocha oak on the nose and palate. Convincing and long. The purity of fruit seals the finish in style. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark, featuring fig and blackberry preserve flavors, this delivers a dense and steeped feel but also throws off beguiling perfume, ending with warm anise, incense and black tea notes on the structured finish. Rock-solid. Inner quote mark (11/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright violet. Mineral-accented dark berry and violet qualities on the deeply perfumed nose. Shows very good breadth as well as energy on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry, black raspberry and spicecake flavors that are complemented by musky herb, floral pastille and licorice nuances. Finishes smoky, smooth and very long, with repeating dark fruit and floral notes and youthful tannic grip. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rich, jammy fruit with sweet oak influence and chewy, fine tannin. Excellent fruit purity – cherry and raspberry. Mercifully soft tannin, enough acid to refresh the finish and inevitably warm alcohol. (RH) 17.5/20 points Inner quote mark (10/2017)
