Jeb Dunnuck, 96 Points 

"The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Reine Des Bois is a bigger, richer, more structured wine, which is normal. A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest equal parts Syrah and Vaccarese, its deeper ruby/purple hue is followed by a brilliant perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, ground pepper, violets, and new saddle leather. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with building tannins and great overall balance, it's another wine that shows the style of the vintage brilliantly. It has plenty of up-front charm, but this beauty will evolve nicely for 15-20 years." 

James Suckling, 95 Points 

"What a beautifully ripe mulberry aroma this Chateauneuf has! An imposing but stunningly fine tannin structure neatly supports the richness and concentration on the full-bodied palate. Very long, creamy and dry finish with a pronounced licorice note that pulls you inexorably back for more. A complex blend based on grenache. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold." 

Vinous, 95 Points 

"Deep violet. Vibrant, mineral-accented red/blue fruit preserve scents are complemented by baking spice and potpourri topnotes. Sappy and concentrated on the palate, showing vibrant lift and energy to intense blueberry, cherry cola, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen with air. Finishes sweet, seamless and impressively long, with steadily building tannins adding shape and closing grip." 

Decanter, 93 Points 

"Full-bodied, generous and full of juicy fruit. Ripe and exuberant, an expansive mass of ripe tannin. Definite sweetness to the mid-palate and a sense of potency. Tannins will take time to soften, but this will make an enjoyably flamboyant style when it's ready. The most well-balanced Reine des Bois in many years. From lieu-dits Bois de la Ville, La Crau and La Nerthe. Fermented and aged in 80% stainless steel, 20% old barriques."  

Alcohol: 15.5%
