One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois...offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvee, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. eRobertParker.com

2012: good fragrance, dark plums and cherries, violets, lavender and spices. Quite a big beast on the palate, full, tannic, super extracted. Very modern and intense. Needs 3-4 years
