The Story

The massive and powerful Réserve des Celestins is generally sourced from Bonneau's vines in La Crau, whose boulder-strewn plateau produces Châteauneuf's ripest fruit. Cuvée Marie Beurrier, Bonneau's more elegant wine, usually comes from clay, limestone and sandy soils.

Written Notes

You get red cherries, cinnamon and game on the nose of this intriguing showing in a really unheralded Rhone vintage from one of the masters of Chateauneuf. There are almost opening Echezeaux like notes to the wine, brilliant mouth perfume, yet it remains a bit angular compared to the ’78 for example or later vintages. Still it is overall a precise, at times agreeably hearty, yet balanced, compelling wine, though again on the finish while it has poise and certainly some flourish, it still lacks some of the vigor, depth or breed of some of the greatest later showings. 92 Points
