Domaine de Cristia Chateauneuf du Pape 2012

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A 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.

RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats. Read less

Cristia’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.
