Tasting Notes

These Grenache vines in the Rayas lieu-dit are only 35 years old, but the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Grand Pin was singing in full voice when I tried a prebottling sample. Lovely floral and garrigue notes accent the ripest cherries on the nose, while the palate is remarkably airy and delicate with a nearly endless, silky finish.

I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Grand Pin and this flagship cuvée (100% Grenache) comes all from the northern part of the Pignan lieu-dit and spent 24 months in demi-muids. It offers a crazily perfumed bouquet of strawberries, pine resin, white pepper and green herbs that continues to change in the glass. This gives way to a full-bodied, seamless 2015 that has impeccable balance, terrific mid-palate depth, and polished tannin. If I had to pick one wine that comes closest in style to Rayas, this would be it.
