Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 96 ()

The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape la Combe des Fous is another gorgeous wine from this estate that offers incredible richness while never seeming heavy, cumbersome or over-the-top. A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Muscardin, Vaccarese and Cinsault, it exhibits thrilling cassis, black raspberry, chocolate, crushed flowers and exotic spice. Full-bodied, seamless and incredibly elegant, it has the polish and balance to drink nicely now, but will evolve for 15 years or more.

Vinous - Score: 94 (2015 Apr.)

Opaque ruby. Potent red fruit liqueur and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose, with a mineral element adding lift. Sweet, concentrated and energetic on the palate, with intense raspberry and cherry-cola flavors deepening and gaining power with air. The penetrating, floral finish features outstanding clarity and thrust, with harmonious tannins providing shape and grip.
