Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of fresh red fruits, candied rose and smoky minerals, with a hint of white pepper in the background. Juicy, penetrating and nicely concentrated, offering energetic raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that put on weight with aeration. Finishes focused and long, with fine-grained, firming tannins. -- Josh Raynolds (April 2015)

89-91 Points- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Looking at the 2012s from barrel, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is a step up from the 2011 and exhibits gorgeously perfumed aromas of cherry blossoms, crushed flowers, incense and assorted berry-styled fruits on both the nose and palate. A medium to full-bodied 2012, with a supple, finesse-driven style and terrific purity of fruit, it has loads of charm and will drink nicely for 8-10 years. Drink now-2022. (Oct. 2013)
