#30 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019
Wonderfully well balanced wines that combine intensity and depth of fruit with finesse and elegance.
Leading off the four Châteauneuf du Pape releases, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape (70% Grenache and 15% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre) offers lots of blackberry fruits as well as notes of violets, flowers, and sandy, loamy earth. It's medium-bodied, with a silky texture, ripe tannins, and the charming nature of the vintage front and center.
