Wine SpectatorRock-solid, with a core of kirsch, raspberry coulis and bitter plum fruit liberally laced with brambly grip, strong oolong tea and dried star anise notes. Shows a lovely tug of tar at the very end. Still very coiled up. For the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035. 750 cases made.

Wine AdvocateAcross the board, T-L has reined in its oak use. The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape spent time in foudres only, from Stockinger, Rousseau and Seguin Moreau. Raspberries and blackberries are joined by herbal, almost tomato-leaf notes, while the full-bodied palate is creamy and lush, ending in a rich, velvety finish.
