Domaine Cristia Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2019 (France)

93PTS W.S.

Producer Notes: Deep red robe, pulling on purple hints. Aromas of wild strawberry-raspberry on the nose, with a spicy and toasted touch. Lots of gluttony. Fresh attack on the fruit, spicy notes that line the mouth and bring a sensual and chocolate finish.

A perfect companion to duck breast with figs.

Wine Spectator, 93 Points: This is ripe, juicy and mouthfilling, with lots of enticing raspberry, boysenberry and fig compote flavors enlivened with anise, fruitcake and mulling spice accents. Shows good energy through the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2023.

Vinous, 92 Points: Vivid ruby. Aromas of mineral-tinged red berries, incense and cola are accompanied by a floral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Appealingly sweet and seamless in texture, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry, spice cake and licorice flavors that are braced by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes smooth and long, with even tannins and lingering floral pastille and spice notes.

Jeb Dunnuck, 90 Points: The base 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape from Cristia is a terrific effort well worth seeking out. Black cherries, blackberries, ground pepper, orange blossom, and assorted spice notes all emerge on the nose, and this puppy is up-front, medium to full-bodied, and ready to go, with a soft, delicious style ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years.
