Tasting Notes
The color is a deep garnet red. The nose of the “Haute Pierre” has strong spicy aromas that reveal a rich, powerful body that is delicate, yet has a tightly-knit tanninc framework. On the palate, the wine is rich and unctuous, revealing intense licorice-like flavors. It can easily be kept 10 years or more.
93 Points Wine Spectator – “Alluring, with a range of dark plum, raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors that have a lightly mulled edge, showing hints of dried garrigue and juniper. There’s a nice caressing feel on the finish. Grenache and Syrah.”
92 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Sporting slightly exaggerated, almost kirsch-like aromas, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Haute Pierre comes out of the bottle in a burst of fruit. Subtle herbal notes emerge with air, lending just enough aromatic complexity to keep it interesting, while the medium to full-bodied palate is silky and taut, showing a fine tension between ripeness and acidity.”
91 Points Jeb Dunnuck – “Moving to the reds and starting with the single Southern Rhône, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Haute Pierre shows the vintage’s charming, front end-loaded style and has lots of strawberry and raspberry fruits, notes of incense and peppery herbs, medium-bodied richness, and just the balanced, charming, endearing style that makes this vintage so much fun to drink.”
