CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker - " Half of this all-Grenache cuvée matures in foudre, while the other half stays in concrete. The result is just over 1,000 cases of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape le Puy Rolland—the best Font du Loup I've ever tasted. Pine and rosemary notes accent cherries and red berries, while hints of black tea, orange zest and rose petals appear on the silky finish. This is full-bodied but nearly weightless, with silky tannins on the finish."


Jeb Dunnuck - "Slightly lighter colored, the 100% Grenache 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Puy Rolland gives up a sweet perfume of strawberries, raspberries, sandy soils, and dried flower notes. It's ethereal and elegant on the palate, with fine yet certainly present tannin. Rayas-like with its elegance and purity, it needs 2-4 years of bottle age for the tannins and will keep for 10-15. 93+"
