Jeb Dunnuck, 96 Points 

"The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Quartz comes from more rocky soils and is always one of the more expressive, Provençal, sexy wines in the lineup. Based on 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, it gives up a smorgasbord-like bouquet of blueberries, black raspberries, peppery herbs, and violets. With full-bodied richness, ripe, polished tannins, and impressive balance, it’s another fresh, elegant, yet incredibly impressive." 

Decanter, 94 Points 

"Juicy, rounded, relaxed and transparent. Enjoyably drinkable, approachable and compact, it feels unforced and authentic, with ripe tannins, fresh blackberry acidity and a neat, precise finish. Grown half on large pebbles, half on sand in lieu-dit Les Cassanets. Destemmed then fermented in tronconic concrete vats, then matured mostly in demi-muid and old barriques except for 7% in amphora." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Blood red color with bright purple reflections. On the nose, we have Garriguette strawberry jam and wild myrtle jelly aromas paired with notes of licorice and saffron. Smooth and full on the palate, Les Quartz shows very silky tannins. On the palate, we have aromas of black cherry, red fruits Sabayon and wild juniper berries. Les Quartz is the emblem of the generosity, the power and the elegance of our soils of round pebbles on sand." 

Alcohol: 15%
