Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
98+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The tiny production 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Da Capo is a powerhouse and unquestionably one of the top wines in the vintage. Compared to the 2010 by Laurence, it offers a stacked, full-bodied, incredibly concentrated feel as well as a blockbuster bouquet of blackcurrants, tapenade, cured meats, garrigue, and assorted Provençal street market-like aromas and flavors. It doesn’t have the sheer volume or flamboyant character of the 2016 (which I think is a better wine) but is deep, straight, and as classic as it gets. Hide bottles for 3-4 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy them over the following 2-3 decades." - Jeb Dunnuck (8/28/2018)

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"As I reported last year, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is impressive. While it's less flamboyantly aromatic than the Cuvée Réservée, it's more powerful and concentrated. Full-bodied and rich, it's loaded with potent raspberry fruit and silky tannins and boasts a finish that won't stop. Hints of roasted meat, lavender and thyme add complexity to the waves of fruit, which wash gently across the palate, exhibiting a lovely soft touch." - Joe Czerwinski (31st Aug 2018)

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Made only in exceptional vintages, the Cuvée da Capo is a powerful, deeply nuanced wine pulsating with fruit and earth complexities. Black-cherry and red-plum flavors are alluring and ripe yet tinged by veins of moss, smoke and fur. It's soft and silky on the palate yet composed. The finish is long and lifted. Gorgeous already it will improve through 2030 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima" - (11/1/2018)

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Juicy and focused, with a dense core of cherry paste, kirsch and plum preserve flavors supported by fresh acidity and racy tannins. Loads of bay leaf, garrigue and warm stone notes score the finish, where additional waves of fruit kick in, adding length and depth. Best from 2020 through 2040. 830 cases made, 100 cases imported." - JM (Issue Aug 31, 2018)

95-97 Points - Vinous:
"Saturated ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, incense and garrigue , accented by a sexy Asian spice nuance in the background. Plush, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering intense black raspberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors that reach every corner of the palate. Smooth, seamless and deeply concentrated but lively as well; velvety tannins add shape to an extremely long, spice- and mineral-accented finish. The interplay of richness and vivacity here is awfully impressive.
" Josh Raynolds - (Mar 2017)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Strong garrigue meets barnyard aromas and wild, dark berries. The palate has a succulent, intense and vibrant array of dark-plum and licorice flavors. Punchy, rugged extract. Needs a rest before drinking. Let this one out of the gate in 2022." - 7 Jul, 2018
