92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2014

Saturated ruby.  Oak-spiced blackberry, cherry-cola and vanilla aromas are sharpened by a bright, minerally quality.  Smooth, palate-coating black and blue fruit compote flavors show excellent depth and become spicier and more energetic with air.  Offers a suave blend of richness and vivacity, finishing sweet, gently tannic and very long.  There is no Cuvee des Cadettes this vintage so this bottling includes all of the estate's old-vines fruit.  (I also had the chance to taste the 2010 Chateauneuf and 2010 Cuvee des Cadettes Chateauneuf this fall and both are still extremely young and in need of more patience, especially the Cuvee des Cadettes.  There's an exotic character to the latter wine, as there was last year, and I can imagine plenty of wine lovers going nuts over its flamboyant character even now, but patience really is in order.)
