    Chateauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam 2017, Santa Duc

    Lavet overvejende på Grenache fra gamle stokke i la Crau i Chateauneuf-du-Pape blandet med lidt Syrah, Mourvèdre og Counoise. Efter sortering gæres de hele klaser naturligt (uden gærtilsætning) og vinen lagrer 18 måneder på store foudres og amforaer af terrakotta.

    Intens, dyb og kompleks næse med kerne af brombær og kirsch samt noter af peber og lakrids. Flot balanceret og poleret i smagen med en lang finish.

    Oplagt vin til juleaften. Resten af året drikkes den til kødretter med tæt sauce eller gode simreretter - flot til vildt. Serveres til den kølige side.

    94-96 p. Wine Advocate (årgang 2017)

    Roses, mint and raspberries give the full-bodied 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam a deceptively light, airy feel. Silky tannins reinforce that sensation, finishing with hints of black tea and a soft dusting of Asian five spice powder. It's a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that should drink well for a decade or more. - Joe Czerwinski

    93-94 p. Vinous (årgang 2017)

    Glistening magenta. Ripe red berries, candied flowers, licorice and white pepper on the pungent nose; a smoky mineral flourish adds vivacity. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering sweet cherry, raspberry preserve and floral pastille flavors that spread out and deepen on the back half. Closes silky, sweet and impressively long, with slow-building tannins adding shape and subtle grip. - Josh Raynolds

    95-97 p. Wine Advocate årgang 2016)

    Still in foudre, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam looks to have softened considerably since I tasted it last year. Floral-herbal notes accent ripe cherries, while the palate boasts a wonderfully rich, creamy texture. Full-bodied, with supple tannins, this tour de force is long, silky and elegant. - Joe Czerwinski

    95 p. James Suckling (årgang 2016)

    Very suave, intense and detailed wine with an array of ripe, red fruit, dark berries in the blue-to-purple spectrum and a swathe of wild herbs. Gently spicy play of oak. The palate has a very composed and focused feel. Long, fine, even and plush tannins.

    92-94 p. Vinous (årgang 2016)

    Limpid ruby. Deep, smoke-accented dark berry and violet pastille scents are energized by a jolt of peppery spice. Smoky, sweet and broad in the mouth, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Shows very good power and energy and finishes with excellent persistence, featuring velvety, late-arriving tannins and a discreet touch of gaminess. - Josh Raynolds

    94 p. Wine Advocate (2015)

    The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam suffers only by comparison to the domaine's other micro-cuvées. It still delivers lovely cherry and stone fruit notes, medium to full body and ample concentration. The tannins are a bit grippier in this wine, so lay it down for a few years. - Joe Czerwinski

    95 p. Wine Enthusiast (2012)

    From a domaine located in Gigondas, this is a profound Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Yes, there's some toasty oak on the nose, but underneath is a big, sturdy core of dark cherries, bay leaf and garrigue. This is a structured wine that's built for the cellar. Drink 2018–2030. - Joe Czerwinski

    92 p. Wine Advocate (2012)

    Proprietor Yves Gras has made a gorgeous 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam that's showing even better from bottle than barrel. Deep ruby colored, with upfront notes of black raspberry, toasted spice, licorice, leather and pepper, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, loads of sweet fruit and ripe, rounded tannin that emerges on the finish. Coming from sandy plots in la Crau lieu-dit and made from 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, it's already drinking nicely, yet will have a graceful evolution through 2025. - Jeb Dunnuck

    92 p. International Wine Report (2012)

    The 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pape ‘Habemus Papam’ is elegant and refined, with gorgeous aromas of fresh cherries and raspberries, which are mixed with licorice, white pepper, lavender and crushed stones. It possesses a medium body, backed by fine silky tannins and wonderful focused through the finish. Although this is impressive right now for its beautiful fresh quality, which I love, this will ultimately need more time in bottle before it will reach its true potential. (Best 2016-2028)
