REVIEWS

95-97 points by Jeb Dunnuck- Robert Parker: The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier is another blockbuster that offers full-bodied richness, a layered, unctuous and expansive, sexy texture, sweet tannin and killer notes of roasted meats, ground pepper, melted licorice, and assorted red and black fruits. It’s one seamless beauty that will be slightly more approachable in its youth than the Collection Charles Giraud, but still keep for over two decades. 227 The Wine Advocate, Oct 2016

94 Points, Joe Czerwinski for Robert Parker - The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier is a blend of 85% Grenache with 15% Cinsault. It pushes the ripeness up a notch from the traditional cuvée toward blackberry, plum and chocolate but remains lively. It, too, is full-bodied and supple, with a creamy texture and a long finish.
