Vinous | Rating: 95-97

Saturated ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, incense and garrigue , accented by a sexy Asian spice nuance in the background. Plush, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering intense black raspberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors that reach every corner of the palate. Smooth, seamless and deeply concentrated but lively as well; velvety tannins add shape to an extremely long, spice- and mineral-accented finish. The interplay of richness and vivacity here is awfully impressive.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96-98

The flagship cuvee, which isn't made in every vintage (when the Cuvee da Capo isn't produced, Laurence normally releases a Cuvee Laurence), the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is primarily Grenache, with 4% Mourvedre, and the rest and assortment of varieties. It comes all from la Crau (a few different parcels), isn't destemmed and there's only a single foudre ever made in a vintage. Easily one of the wines of the vintage, it sports a deep, opaque purple color as well as thick, concentrated, unctuous notes of black cherries, caramelized meats, liquid smoke, pepper and charcuterie. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated on the palate, with masses of sweet tannin, it reminds me of a slightly toned down 1998 as opposed to the more opulent 2000, 2003 or 2007.
