97 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The pure Grenache 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Sanctus Sanctorum was matured in a combination of clay amphorae and new demi-muids. It's an enormous yet fruit-driven wine, endowed with masses of raspberries and stone fruit yet featuring complexity in the form of dried spices, like cinnamon, clove and allspice. Creamy and intense, it's a roller coaster ride of exuberance, yet it's ultimately elegant as it glides into a nearly never-ending finish. The only thing that kept me from going higher was the slight bit of warmth on the finish, which I think limits the wine's aging potential. Drink: 2017-2028. (Oct 2017)"

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Sanctus Sanctorum is another 2015 that’s all about finesse and purity. Coming from a single parcel of very old vines in the La Crau Lieu-dit, it boasts full-bodied richness and depth to go with a kaleidoscope-like bouquet of strawberries, kirsch liqueur, incense and dried earth/loamy soils aromas. It has good acidity, the tannins are present and ripe, and it has a stacked mid-palate, all while just gliding over the palate. Drink this heavenly Grenache anytime over the coming 20 years.
