2019 Domaine Durieu Blanc  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Medium-bodied, fresh, bright and crisp, with nice lift on the medium-bodied, lighter palate. Drink this in its youth for all its up-front, juicy, sweet, fresh citrus character. Drink from 2022 - 2027 89 Points

2019 Domaine Durieu  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Peppery kirsch, strawberry and herbs make themselves right away. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, soft, round, bright and spicy, leaving you with a blast of black cherry, plums and more cherries in the endnote. Drink from 2022 - 2032 90 Points

2018 Domaine Durieu Cuvée Lucile Avril  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Jammy kirsch and pepper is the first thing you notice on the palate. The wine is sweet, fresh, elegant and refined with a good sense of purity in the sweet cherry packed finish. 92 Points

2016 Domaine Durieu Cuvée Lucile Avril  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

Floral, peppery, spicy and smoky accents ride on top of the fresh, ripe, red fruits in the nose and on the palate. Medium-bodied, elegant and forward, with a blast of ripe, spicy, sweet kirsch in the finish. The wine is a blend of 85% old-vine Grenache, 10% old vine Mourvedre and 5% Syrah. 93 Points

2012 Domaine Durieu  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Still young, as you would expect, this medium bodied, kirsch filled, traditionally made charmer offers loads of sweet, spicy, black raspberries, earth and black pepper with lush textures. Although OK to drink today, give it another year or two and it should be even better. 90 Points

2010 Domaine Durieu Cuvée Lucile Avril  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

A super Chateauneuf du Pape at a great price is getting harder to find these days. But this wine wine delivers both value and great style. Dominated by old vine Grenache, the wine pops with fresh kirsch, jam, herbs and spice box aromatics. Open, opulent, fleshy and already delicious, this is a winner! 93 Points

2009 Domaine Durieu Cuvée Lucile Avril  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Full bodied, plush, open and displaying ripe black cherries, kirsch liqueur, garrigue and spice in the nose, the wine is lush and carries it's ripe, old vine fruit intensity all the way through. 92 Points

2007 Domaine Durieu Cuvée Lucile Avril  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Pepper, garrigue, jammy black raspberry and earth aromas were easy to find, But the wine felt flat on the palate.. This cherry dominated finish was short and to the point. This is an OK wine, but there is nothing that makes it special. 90 Points
