96 Points James Suckling - Enormous concentration with great tannin structure giving this extraordinary elegance on the expansive palate. Extremely long finish with a cascade of candied orange, licorice and mineral character. From ancient Grenache vines in the La Crau site, but from the part with sandy soil. A Grenache-based cuvee, one-third of which was matured in foudre, one-third in new oak and one-third in concrete tank. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.

95 Points Jeb Dunnuck - The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cornelia Constanza (100% Grenache) is another singular expression of this incredible variety that shines on all accounts. Giving up a big bouquet of mulled red cherry and strawberry fruits as well as sappy flowers and garrigue, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, pure, elegant mouthfeel, ripe, polished tannins, and one heck of a great finish. Coming from more sandy soils, it shines for its finesse and elegance and is already hard to resist. It will keep for at least 10-12 years, and probably longer. Drink: 2022-2034

94 Points Wine Spectator - A seductive, polished red, with sappy cherry, black currant and warm licorice melting together, all upheld by a spine of iron. Offers garrigue, black pepper and singed apple wood smoke accents on the lush palate, which shows real drive, staying power and good balance. Best from 2024 through 2035. 267 cases made, 100 cases imported.

100% Grenache

From the Winery - Produced in hommage to Cornelia Costanza Barberini (1716-1797) the last Princess of the Family Barberini. A full-bodied, elegant and refined wine, tannic while remaining velvety smooth with gooseberry, toffee, cinnamon, cardamom and sichuan pepper, finishing very long on the palate.
