"Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge - wine with explosive character, seductive and contemporary in style. It's fine to drink now, but will be in the form of wine and over the next 7-8 years. It can be criticized as overtly commercial, but despite that, due to its fruitiness and character, it is perfect for those consumers who do not like to postpone pleasure indefinitely "- Robert Parker.
