2017 Bosquet des Papes "A la Gloire de Mon Grand Père" Châteauneuf-du-Pape 12-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1488085 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 98% Grenache and 1% each of Cinsault and Clairette, brought up in demi-muids and foudre, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Pere has a rocking, medium to full-bodied, layered style as well as notes of kirsch, dried earth, ground pepper, and garrigue. This is another sexy, seamless, layered wine from this estate that's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and shine for a decade. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Shimmering ruby. Deep-pitched, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry cola and candied licorice are enlivened by a smoky mineral topnote. Densely packed and impressively concentrated, showing bright, spicy lift to the sweet raspberry preserve, cherry pie and lavender pastille flavors. Closes with resonating florality, gently gripping tannins and superb, cherry-dominated tenacity. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Because of its rich tannic structure, I expect the 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père to be among the longer-lived wines from this estate. It's loaded with concentrated notes of plums, raspberries and cherries, all delivered on a full-bodied, velvety palate and ending with chewy tannins and salted licorice. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Meaty, beefy nose with ample bramble fruit in support. Attractive spicing on the palate with a lengthy milk-chocolate character on the finish. Chalky tannic feel will allow fairly early drinking. 17+/20 points. Drink 2020-2030. (RH) Inner quote mark (11/2018)
