93pts The Wine Advocate– 2017 vintage

FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
The impressive 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Elixir des Papes is 100% Grenache, fermented in concrete and then aged in stainless steel. With no wood, it reveals hints of thyme and cracked pepper alongside red raspberry and mint notes.

93pts Wine Advocate– 2018 vintage

The certified-organic 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Elixir des Papes is 100% Grenache from the Coudoulet lieu-dit. Loaded with attractive notions of garrigue on the nose, those scents of thyme, lavender and rosemary are backed by black cherries on the full-bodied palate.

Broad and expansive in the mouth, with supple—almost creamy—tannins, the wine adds mentholated hints of dark chocolate on the long finish. The juxtaposition of herbal elements and ripeness make for an intriguing, complex wine worth coming back to.

It’s full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a long finish and building tannins. Give it two to three years and drink it over the next decade.
