Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie 2016


Lobenberg: La Folie ist eine Mikroproduktion von gerade mal 3.500 Flaschen pro Jahr. Traditionelle Vinifikation in thermoregulierten Betontanks, Entrappen der Trauben und Kaltmazeration. Ausbau in großen Holzfässern. Das ist die modernste Cuvée des Hauses, die früher trinkreif ist. Hier hat man etwas mehr Kakao und auch ein wenig Vanille nebst zart roter Frucht. Mittelkräftiger Körper und geschmeidige Tannine machen das zu einer hedonistischen Interpretation. 96-97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The deepest colored of the trio and a true “Wow” wine, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Folie is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that was completely destemmed and brought up 10% new barrels, with the balance in demi-muids. An insane bouquet of black cherry liqueur, blackberries, crushed rocks, and pepper garrigue gives way to a full-bodied, incredibly polished, seamless Grenache. This beauty does everything right and possesses a vibrant, sexy texture, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish. It will most likely merit a triple-digit score in a few years and cruise for a decade or more. 99/100


Parker über: Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie

-- Parker: The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape la Folie is a special cuvée that has only been made three times: in 2007, 2015 and 2016. As Nicolas Boiron points out, it's a 'modern style' of Châteauneuf, completely destemmed and aged in demi-muids and barriques, with a fair proportion of those barrels being new. Mocha cedar notes mark the nose at this early age, while the flavors resemble caramelized cherries and baking spices. Full-bodied, rich, creamy and undeniably plush, it's still recognizable as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, showing velvety hints of chocolate on the long finish. The assemblage is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. 97/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Black raspberries, kirsch, cherry and floral notes sing their song. The wine is pure silky decadence. There is tiny bit of new wood that is completely eaten by all the layers of perfectly ripe fruit. The purity in the fruit is striking here. The finish seems to go forever. I might be underrating this wine, as it is so nice to drink already. The wine is made blending 80% old vine Grenache and 20% Mourvedre97/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie

-- Wine Enthusiast: A small amount of maturation in new French oak yields seamlessly integrated notes of smoke, char and caramel as well as fiery black cherry and currant in this wine.Plummy and richly concentrated, it's balanced by kicks of pepper and a firm, granitic undertone. Fine-grained, velveteen tannins are approachable already but should meld and improve through 2030. 95/100


Galloni über: Chateauneuf du Pape La Folie

-- Galloni: Deep bright-rimmed magenta. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherries, black currants, incense and exotic spices, and a sexy floral topnote builds steadily as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with alluringly sweet red and dark berry preserve, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that show a compelling blend of richness and energy. Velvety tannins build steadily through the impressively long, spicy finish, which leaves sappy red fruit liqueur, allspice and cola notes behind. Raised in new and used demi-muids and barriques. 95/100
