Why We're Buying

Plain and simple, Henri Bonneau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve des Célestins is a killer wine. It's rich, concentrated, and complex. It opens with intense candied red fruit that brings along Asian spice, minerally notes, and fresh-cut flowers. As wine critic Robert Parker said in 2011, "the elixir that comes out of the (Henri Bonneau) barrels never ceases to amaze."

A clear step up over the Marie Beurrier release, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve des Célestins was the star of the show on this occasion, and this tannic, full-bodied beauty would no doubt be loved by Henri. Cassis, earth, garrigue, licorice and assorted black fruits all emerge from this deep purple-colored effort and it’s tannic, structured and deep.
