94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Capelan, and in 2017 it’s 80% Grenache, and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in 70% new barrel (although you wouldn’t know it by tasting it). Already complex and layered, with fabulous notes of saddle leather, smoked black fruits, garrigue and lavender, this beauty is full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, yet has stunning purity and freshness. It’s up with the gems of the vintage. (8/28/18)"

96 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The top bottled wine here is the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cotes Capelan, which is about 80% Grenache, with Mourvèdre and Syrah accounting for the balance. It starts off a bit closed, so splash it around or decant it a bit in advance of serving to see floral notes blossom, followed by mixed red and black cherries and berries. Medium to full-bodied, it's incredibly silky and long on the licorice-tinged finish. Drink: 2020-2035. (8/30/19)"
