95 points "A powerhouse for the vintage, with loads of blackberry and black currant fruit held at bay by tar, loamy tannins and thick layers of cocoa and coffee. Marvelously balanced despite its weight, with fruit and terroir coursing through the finish. Best from 2008 through 2030. 1,100 cases made. –JM" Best -2030

96 points "2003 was a challenging vintage for Chateauneuf du Pape, but the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois (70% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest equal parts Cinsault, Counoise, Syrah, and Vaccarese) is extraordinary. I had wondered if the culling out of a special lot for the La Plume du Peintre would have any impact on the Cuvee de la Reine des Bois, but it has not. This is stunning Chateauneuf du Pape with an inky ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of blackberries, camphor, licorice, spice box, and violets. The wine is full-bodied, rich and layered, and similar in style to the 2001. It’s a beauty, and should drink well for 15 or more years." Best 2006-2021
