Domaine de Cristia Chateauneuf du Pape 2012
|Brand||Domaine de Cristia|
Wine SpectatorA flashy style, with red licorice and warm fruitcake notes backed by flavors of plum sauce and boysenberry preserves. Singed apple wood and licorice details fuel the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025. 2,665 cases made.
Wine AdvocateCristia's 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic example of this cuvée and offers loads of upfront fruit, texture and richness in its fruity, ripe style. Giving up plenty of darker fruits, old leather and damp herbs, enjoy this medium to full-bodied beauty over the coming 7-8 years.
