Chateauneuf du Pape 2011 Grand Reserve, Philippine De St.-Cyrille
Item Number: 19 10 243 11
An outstanding wine and a super value Chateauneuf. As an established negociant in this region, Philippine De St.-Cyrille has relationships with the best houses. In a challenging vintage like 2011, many will turn over to them, wine that does not make the cut for their posh, pricy labels. Wine that is excellent perhaps but not mind-blowing and the result is this delicious Grand Reserve. Wine Spectator scored it 91 points saying "Gorgeous warm cocoa, ganache and espresso notes lead the way, followed by macerated fig, blackberry paste and warm plum sauce flavors. Dense and loamy through the finish. Shows impressive density for the vintage. Best from 2016 through 2026." This is clearly one of the best values of the vintage. Grab it!
