Ratings & Reviews
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Clocking in at a demure 12% abv, this dainty Châteauneuf-du-Pape lacks the brawn of its 2015 peers. However, its delicate footprint and pristine black-cherry and plum flavors are refreshing, tinged by bramble, cinnamon and cedar. An elegant, spry wine that's approachable now, it should hold well through 2022." - AI (Nov 2018)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
""A cuvée for American importer Fran Kysela, Galet du Roi's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a stolid, earthy blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre. Cherry, earth and cinnamon notes are framed by supple tannins." - Joe Czerwinski (Aug 2018)
