88 points "Bright red. Pungent, floral-tinged strawberry and raspberry on the nose, with a bright mineral accent. Lush and creamy, with fresh red fruit flavors, a gentle herbal undercurrent and silky tannins. This is very supple and is drinking well already. Raised completely in concrete. "

87 points "As for the red cuvees, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine possesses notes of pepper, herbs, berry fruits, garrigue, and licorice. This well-made, richly fruity 2004 is ideal for drinking during its first 7-8 years of life. " Best 2007-2015
