92 Points - Wine Advocate
"Consumers who want a bit more oomph than the 2014 offers will want to seek out Guigal's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, which is a ripe, full-bodied example of the appellation. Bottled just a week before I tasted it, it was somewhat closed on the nose but is wonderfully velvety and rich, with plenty of dark fruit flavors, accented by dried spices on the long finish." -JC, 10/31/18

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Distinctive, with singed mesquite and alder notes leading off, giving this a woodsy profile, balanced by an ample core of steeped raspberry and bitter plum fruit, along with tobacco, sandalwood and rooibos tea hints. The mesquite-alder edge lingers on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2028. 11,667 cases made, 3,500 cases imported." -JM, 6/15/19
