  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    Few Chateauneuf du Papes from this vintage turned out well, and the few that did required consumption during their first decade of life. Bonneau's 1986 is just hitting full maturity. It offers a concoction of jammy, concentrated licorice-infused black cherry fruit, with hints of tobacco, cedar, beef blood, smoked herbs, and Asian spices. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of licorice, Peking duck, and other exotic scents emerge. An amazing effort, it may be the only Reserve des Celestins I own that can be classified as fully mature.

    A very distinctive wine, earthy, ripe and decadent, matching every touch of concentrated plummy, jammy fruit with barky, herbal overtones. Not for everyone.
