Vinous 92 points - (80% grenache, 6% syrah, 4% mourvedre and the rest ”everything else”): Deep ruby. Ripe black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by potpourri, incense and licorice, with a smoky topnote. Sappy, focused dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are sharpened by juicy acidity and show very good depth. Lots of fruit here but there’s good structure as well. Finishes sweet and long, with velvety tannins adding shape. As with the ’12, there’s a degree of elegance to this wine and less of the wild edge of the Pegaus of a few vintages back.  (Jan 2014)

Wine Advocate 93 points - Beautiful in the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is a forward, perfumed example of the cuvee that has classic Pegau black fruits, tobacco leaf, pepper and leathery notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Early-drinking by this estate’s standards, there’s nevertheless good mid-palate density and fine tannin. It should have 15 years or so of overall longevity. Drink now-2026.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - This shows an enticing bay leaf note, with juicy blackberry and black currant fruit up front, followed by melted licorice and a tarry edge on the finish, underscored by a roasted alder accent. Has the friendly, racy fruit of the vintage, with some distinct character to boot. Best from 2014 through 2025.J.M. (Oct 2 2013)
