Nicholas Greinacher of Antonio Galloni's Vinous rated this wine 94 points.  “The 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is distinctively elegant.  A blend of 65% Grenache, 10% Cinsaut, 10% Mourvèdre and other permitted varieties.  It presents delicate aromas of juicy red and black fruits, licorice, dried herbs, black olive tapenade and a pinch of white pepper.  Plush tannins caress the medium to full-bodied palate, neatly balanced by fresh acidity.”  (Apr. 2023).

Joe Czerwinski of Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate rated this wine 93-95 points.  “Isabel Ferrando informed me during my visit that she planned to eliminate the Reserve Auguste Favier and Collection Charles Giraud bottlings, folding those lots and the 'tradition' Saint-Prefert Châteauneuf into a single, combined wine under the Famille Isabel Ferrando label.  The resulting blend she showed as the 2020 Famille Isabel Ferrando Chateauneuf du Pape is a fine effort, with layers of cola-like spice and hints of garrigue layered against a lush backdrop of cherries and raspberries.  Medium to full-bodied and almost creamy in texture, it finishes long, silky and mouthwatering.”  (May 5, 2022).  Organic; Biodynamic.

The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Colombis is the usual 100% Grenache that was brought up all in demi-muids. More dried strawberries, blackberries, loamy earth, spice, and hints of saddle leather emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, has ripe tannins, and is just a heavenly Grenache in the making. I don't see it hitting the same heights as the 2007, but it's certainly up with the top players of the vintage.

Drawn from three plots of old-vine Grenache (70- to 80-year-old vines), the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Colombis looks to be another fantastic example of this cuvée, bursting with cherries and raspberries and nuanced by delicate sprigs of garrigue and hints of roses and black tea. Medium to full-bodied and silken in texture on the palate, it finishes with tremendous length and subtly building tannins. It's one 2020 that could take a few years to come around.

The single varietal Grenache 2020 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Colombis is a towering effort. Having the edge over the 2021 and coming in at 15.5% alcohol, it presents pristine aromas of ripe red fruits that have a jewel-like quality to them, dried lavender, cardamom, licorice, pencil shavings and crushed rocks. Full-bodied and layered, it is framed by ever-so-velvety tannins and balanced by high levels of fresh acidity. There is fantastic tension on the complex finish that goes on for well over a minute. 6,000 bottles produced.

Offers gorgeous mouthfeel, with very fine-grained tannins thoroughly embedded into the core of crushed blackberry, raspberry puree and plum pâte de fruit flavors. Mouthwatering licorice snap, black tea and graphite notes drive the finish, adding serious length and depth. Integrated enough to be tempting now, but this will deliver much more after cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2040. 765 cases made, 300 cases imported.
