Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Sexy, opulent, even voluptuous is the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve. This is an atypically fleshy, flamboyant style of Chateauneuf du Pape that seems almost an anomaly in this vintage of more restrained and elegant wines. Its beautiful texture and copious red and black fruits intermixed with licorice and Provencal herbs is a sexy concoction. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.
