Clos du Mont Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2016 (750ml)

94 pts Jeb Dunnuck
The finest base cuvee produced at this estate is the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape, which is 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah and the balance Cinsault, all aged in a mix of foudre and older barrels. Beautiful plums, blackberries, garrigue, and marine-like seaweed and iodine notes all give way to a pure, polished, full-bodied Chateauneuf-du-Pape that has integrated acidity and a great finish. It's a sensational classic cuvee that will keep for 2+ decades.

93 pts Vinous Media
Vivid ruby. Sharply focused black raspberry, cherry pit, potpourri and garrigue scents pick up a bright, smoky nuance with air. Nicely concentrated raspberry and floral pastille flavors are given spicy bite by a suggestion of white pepper. Fine-grained tannins come in slowly to add shape and grip to the strikingly long, vibrant, floral-driven finish. This is quite a graceful wine for the vintage, and while it should drink well young, it will also age well on its balance.
