95 Points James Suckling - A very imposing Chateauneuf with enormous depth of Mediterranean herb aromas that makes a bold statement on the expansive palate, but also has wonderful freshness for this density. Underplayed tannic power in spite of the huge scale. Stacks of black berries, sour cherries and orange zest at the very long finish. From organically grown grapes. A cuvee based on grenache, syrah and mourvedre from old vines growing on the the galet cobblestone soils. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck - The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Barberini is a more modern styled effort based on 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 15% Syrah that's brought up in new barrels and concrete tanks. Its deeper ruby/plum color is followed by a great nose of both red and black fruits as well as chocolate, ground pepper, and spicy, meaty nuances. Playing in the supple, forward style of the vintage, it's medium to full-bodied, has a layered, elegant mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Despite a kiss of barrique on the nose, this is pure Provençal goodness.

93 Points Wine Spectator - Offers crushed dark plum, baked cherry pie and rooibos tea flavors that are fleshy yet pure, with good vibrancy and lift. Juicy and supple, with chalky tannins coasting through the medium-length finish, with graphite adding mineral depth. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2035. 600 cases made, 100 cases imported.

65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre

From the Winery - A delicate nose, mingling aromas of tobacco, violets, cedar and milk chocolate. The mouth is velvety with aromas of liquorice and cherry, with a persistent chocolatey finish.
