Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Robust and flavourful. Aromas of dark cherry and jammy strawberry, along with smoke and spice. Full bodied with smooth tannins, lots of dark spice on the palate with a smoky finish. Enjoy with grilled beef or lamb.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full and expressive nose focusing on floral and fruity aromas. Red cherry and strawberry with lavender and violet, with subtle dried herbs in the background. Extra dry with good acidity. Hard to believe this is 15% ABV as it is so well integrated and balanced. Palate gives a healthy serving of red fruit with savoury herbs. Cassoulet with duck confit would make an extraordinary pairing.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich dark cherry colour. The nose is like you are surrounded by sweet hay on a warm summer day. The palate is silky but striking with racy raspberry and cherry tones. Tannins on the finish are fine and gripping. Medium to long finish. This wine deserves Chateaubriand with the tenderloin and all its trappings! Tasted April 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Produced by Ferraton Père & Fils, Le Parvis 2016 is a blockbuster Chateauneuf-du-Pape from the heart of the Rhone. A red wine blend of 75% Grenache and Syrah that saw elevage in concrete tank. Robust and flavourful with dark cherry, strawberry compote, smoke and cake spice flavours on the palate. Full bodied, supple with smooth tannins, enjoy now and for the next eight years. - Community Wine Reviews
