#77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014
The Chateau D’Ampuis displays deep dark color with mauve tints with aromas of spices, black fruits and delicate oak; a dense, expressive and intense nose. A tannic and racy wine. Flavors of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak aging.
