In the September 30th issue of Wine Spectator, M. Chapoutier La Bernardine 2012 and M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche Blanc 2013 both scored 90-point ratings:

90 points: M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Bernardine 2012

“Focused, with a solid core of red currant and raspberry fruit lined with brambly tannins and backed by dried anise and lavender notes. A light echo of warm stone runs through the finish, adding length. Drink now through 2022.” –James Molesworth.

90 points: M. Chapoutier Crozes-Hermitage White Petite Ruche 2013

“Offers a nice, racy feel, with yellow apple skin and dried pineapple notes moving along, backed by honeysuckle and star fruit hints. Bright and energetic. Drink now.” –James Molesworth.
