This estate always makes a traditionally styled wine and their 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape is no exception, revealing a medium ruby/purple color as well as spicy, gamey notes of red and black currants, smoked game, peppery garrigue, and new saddle leather. Medium to full-bodied, with terrific elegance (which is the vintage), a gorgeous texture, and outstanding length, this is classic, old-school Châteauneuf du Pape done clean, balanced, and brilliantly! It’s going to evolve nicely for 15 years or more. 2020 - 2035
Deep crimson in colour. A bold, ripe and round nose with a little matchstick reduction at this stage - it will need some time in bottle or a decant before approaching. The palate reveals the potential, dense, ripe and chewy with a full body and heady concoction of summer fruits. This is impressive, thick and long to the finish.
