2014 Domaine Font de Michelle  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Kirsch, kirsch and more kirsch is all over the place in this forward, medium bodied wine, that also serves up notes of thyme and pepper. This is already drinking well, so enjoy it while waiting for the 15 and 16 to develop. 90 Points

2012 Domaine Font de Michelle  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Medium bodied, with garrigue and fresh, sweet red berries in the nose, the wine is soft, textured, the fruit is ripe and as it’s already open, it’s delicious today. From 70% Grenache and assorted varieties, the wine reached 15% alcohol with no sensation of heat. 91 Points

2009 Domaine Font de Michelle Cuvée Elégance de Jeanne  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

This bottle was finished far too quickly. With its forward, luscious character, ripe, sweet, cherries and kirsch, pepper, thyme, garrigue, and silky textures, it's easy to understand why. 93 Points

2007 Domaine Font de Michelle Cuvée Etienne Gonnet  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Close to fully mature, lots of cherries, earth, thyme and spice on the nose. Medium/full bodied, with a soft, sweet, black raspberry finish. 92 Points

Forward, open and expressing its kirsch, licorice, earth and black cherry core, the wine is plush, round and inviting, finishing with sweet, ripe, spicy black raspberries. This is probably not a wine to age in the hopes its going to make old bones. It's really drinking nice tonight with dinner. 92 Points

1998 Domaine Font de Michelle Cuvée Etienne Gonnet  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Fully mature, the fruit has faded since it was first released. Still, there is a sweet, kirsch, pepper, earth and garrigue profile, along with silky textures that make this a lot of fin to drink. 90 Points
