« The top wine from the portfolio, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme offers thrilling purity and focus in its lively dark fruits, roasted meats and underbrush-scented bouquet. Full-bodied, ripe and textured, with fantastic polish and sweetness to its tannin, it has a supple, forward feel, yet will easily evolve for 10-15 years. » (Wine Advocate 2014 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Meilleur vin parmi ceux dégustés, le Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme 2012 offre une pureté et une concentration saisissantes dans ses fruits noirs vifs, ses notes de viande rôtie et son bouquet parfumé aux arômes de sous-bois. Corsé, mûr et texturé, avec un poli fantastique et de la douceur dans son tanin, il offre une sensation souple, mais qui évoluera facilement pendant 10-15 ans
