Maison La Berthaude Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2016
92 Points! Hints of cedar and baking spices add modern touches to the full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. It's a big, rich wine, filled with cherries and red berries, turning a bit tannic on the long, cinnamon-dusted finish. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com
91 Points! Black cherries, damp herbs, sappy garrigue and floral notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, nicely balanced wine that will keep for a decade. This cuvée is 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and Clairette that comes from the la Bertaude, Bois Lauzon, Cabrieres, and Chapouin lieux-dits. It was destemmed and aged in a mix of foudre, tank, and barrels (6% being new). - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com
