The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape les Quartz is one of the more powerful, structured 2012s and exhibits wonderful black raspberry, creamy licorice, smoked earth and crushed rock/liquid minerality. Medium to full-bodied and classically styled on the palate, with a broad, expansive feel, it has sweet fruit, plenty of tannin and beautiful length. (JD)
Vivid purple. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit scents are complicated by notes of licorice and cola. In quite a different style than the Safres, offering sweet boysenberry and black raspberry flavors and a touch of white pepper. Tighten up on the finish, which clings with resonating spiciness. (JR)
85% Grenache, 15% Syrah. Real mineral lift on the nose. Not heavy. Some lovely rose-petal-scented rich fruit and then vibrant life. A special bottling worth paying for? Lovely polish. Clean and bright. 18/20 points.(JR)
