"Leading off the three Châteauneuf du Pape releases, the 2020 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Trois Source comes from three different terroirs located in the northern part of the appellation, just across the street from the domaine.
Roasted Provençal garrigue, black licorice, black raspberries, Asian spices, and a hint of cassis all define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with a layered, medium to full-bodied profile that has silky tannins and no hard edges. It's much more up-front and approachable than the more structured Les Hauts-Lieux and is going to drink fabulously well over the coming 15+ years". ~96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
"An open, spicy style, with vibrant fruit, violets and sugared almonds. Rounded, juicy and fresh, the acidity is quite marked and the alcohol is quite high, however it's very ripe, with blackberry and liquorice within grippy tannins which need time. Vines are on three terraces on sandy soils. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Muscardin, Terret Noir, Vaccarèse, Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Picardan, with an average age of 75 years, all co-planted and co-fermented". ~93 Points, Decanter
