93. This is a very even, balanced and complex Châteauneuf. Not profound or texturally massive (as is the case with 2011s), but it is harmonious and focused and very complex. It was a lighter path to maturity. Lifted precise aromas of strawberry-cherry jam, fresh sage, woodsy and peppery aromas mingle ever so nicely. It’s medium-full, with a sense of freshness and poise. The length is excellent to outstanding. Evolving faily quickly, so enjoy over the next five years.
