Description

Uber-talented winemaker Julien Barrot's take on the 2015 vintage in his Chateauneuf du Pape vineyards, the final blend being 62% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre and the remainder Syrah and other grapes permitted under the appellation rules. RobertParker.com loves the purity, tension and length; three great signs in a young wine destined for the cellar. Very approachable in its youth, it will be best between 5 and 10 years from vintage, though no problems going longer if you prefer more age.

Smells

Disarmingly pure bouquet of flowers, blackcurrant, Christmas cake and blueberry.

Tastes

Rich and opulent in the classic Chateauneuf du Pape style, with a lovely firm structure that shows you it's not all about instant appeal (though there's plenty of that). The dense fruit core eventually subsides to reveal a nuanced finish with excellent focus and length. Benchmark modern Chateauneuf du Pape, this will be best after 2020, but is perfectly delicious now.
