"Kirsch, blackberries, crushed flowers, blood orange, and tons of spice all emerge from the 2017 Ch?teauneuf Du Pape Les Quartz. It's one of the richer, sexier wines in the lineup, which is certainly what this vintage delivers in spades. Full-bodied and concentrated, with a beautiful mid-palate, it's going to evolve positively for 2-4 years and drink brilliantly for 20 years or more. This is an incredibly fine, elegant version of this wine."

"The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz features scents of black olives and black cherries on the nose. It's a full-bodied, dense, tightly packed wine that will need time to fully express itself?is it a modern-day 2005? Ample cherry and stone fruit appear on the long, intense finish, confirming the terrific potential this wine possesses."

"Dark shimmering ruby. Spice-accented raspberry and cherry scents are complicated by hints of incense, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering deep-pitched red and dark berry liqueur, fruitcake and candied lavender flavors that become more lively as the wine stretches out. Concentrated but vibrant in style, delivering solid finishing thrust on the floral-driven finish, which shows sharp delineation and strong persistence."
