My wine of the vintage is the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Reserve, which is in the same league as the other greats from this estate including the 2001, 2003, 2005, 2010, and 2016. Revealing a deep purple color as well as a massive bouquet of crème de cassis, violets, graphite, black licorice, and hints of pepper garrigue, it hits the palate with a massive array of fruit, full-bodied richness, no hard edges, and enough sweet tannins to warrant another 5-7 years of bottle age. Based all on very old vine Grenache from sandy soils just across the street from the domaine (the Trois Source has a large portion of its blend from a similar terroir), brought up all in foudre, it’s a singular, heavenly wine from Jean-Paul Daumen that’s going to go down as one of the greats from Châteauneuf du Pape. - Jeb Dunnuck

Inky ruby. Expansive dark berry preserve, cherry liqueur, licorice and potpourri aromas are complemented by an exotic spice flourish and a suggestion of smoky minerality. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated black raspberry, boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors, along with five-spice powder and floral pastille nuances. Slowly firms up with air and finishes with superb clarity, building tannins and outstanding, floral-driven persistence. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

Super-condensed fruit on the nose, really powerful and thick. Extraordinary density. Oily, tarry thickness. So thick and rich it has a cassis sort of nose. It’s a Châteauneuf for Napa Cabernet lovers, although it still has a sense of place. (RH) - Jancis Robinson
