Vignobles Mayard Châteauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire 2020
4 pack 16 oz.
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
A wine full of pleasure and refinement, with aromas of red and black fruits depending on the vintage. The palate is fruity and floral, complex with silky and persistent tannins.
Lots of strawberries, wildflowers, spice, and peppery notes emerge from the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Clos Du Calvaire. Medium-bodied, with a supple, elegant texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish, it's another terrific 2020 from this estate that will shine for a decade. This was a little bit of a hit or miss lineup from this estate. I found some of the 2019s to come up short on balance as well as showing some firm tannins.
