2012 Domaine Jean Royer Cuvée Les Sables de la Crau  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Any Chateauneuf du Pape made from 100% Grenache planted in one of the best vineyards on La Crau should have it all going on, and this does for sure. Pure, liquid kirsch, garrigue, black pepper and wild raspberries are in full force. The lusciously textured, fruit filled finish hit the spot too! 92 Points

2010 Domaine Jean Royer Cuvée Prestige  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Rich, luscious, ripe, dark red fruits, thyme and a blast of sweet kirsch hit the spot. The wine offers freshness, ripe fruits and it's in a forward, approachable style, so you can drink it young, for its primary appeal, or age it, for more earthy, secondary characteristics. 91 Points

2007 Domaine Jean Royer Sola Syrah Regalis  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Concentrated, with depth of flavor, along with tannins and acidity, the wine, while well made, and showing a lot of dark, red fruits, does not quite rock my boat. This is my first time tasting a Chateauneuf made from 100% Syrah. While the wine is certainly interesting, it does make it obvious as to why Grenache is King in the region. 89 Points
