"The 2017 ChÃ¢teauneuf-du-Pape looks to be a huge success and reminds me of the 2007. As is normal, Vincent keeps multiple foudres with different blends (as well as a foudre of the final blend), and it's always incredibly educational tasting through the different barrels. The final blend has a classic, sweet bouquet of kirsch, spices, and garrigue, and it's full-bodied, deep, and thrillingly concentrated on the palate. The blend is shifted more toward MourvÃ¨dre due to the tiny quantity of Grenache in the vintage, which makes me think this cuvÃ©e might close down shortly after bottling, but it's upfront and incredibly expressive today."
"Paul-Vincent Avril continues to be one of the most talented and passionate winemakers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape today. From his estate located on the southern end of the village and pulling from roughly 90 acres of vines spread throughout the appellation, he makes a single white and red Chateauneuf-du-Pape and has resisted the urge to produce any special cuvees. The wine is always a blend of 60% Grenache 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, aged all in older foudre in a temperature-controlled and humidified cellar. His Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a staunchly traditional and world-class wine that always shines for its elegance and texture." - 96-99 Points Jeb Dunnuck
