95 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

Vibrant red color.  High-pitched aromas of raspberry, candied cherry, allspice and clove, with an intense floral quality that gaining strength with air.  Showing more energy and delicacy from bottle than it did from barrel last year; in fact, there's something Burgundian going on here.  Silky and seamless on the palate, with a bracing minerality adding punch to its sweet red fruit and floral pastille qualities.  Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering red fruit and floral notes.  This wine virtually always delivers the most bang for the buck of any Chateauneuf tete de cuvee and this vintage continues that streak.
