Tasting Notes

Showing beautifully (a lot of 2012s have put on weight since I tasted them on release), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure has plenty of similarities to the 2010, with terrific purity and freshness in its blackberry, kirsch, currants and ground herb-driven bouquet. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, it's perfectly balanced and never puts a foot wrong. It will benefit from short-term cellaring, but should be approachable at an earlier age than the 2010, and have 20 years of overall longevity.
