Description

FWD Co. review: Exciting winemaker Julien Barrot's expression of the fabulous 2016 vintage from his ancient Chateauneuf du Pape vines, the final blend being 65% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre and the remaining 13% Syrah dominant with other grapes permitted under the appellation rules. Julian has crafted a wine that beautifully expresses the Grenache dominant basket of grapes from this famous appellation captured in generous fine tannins yet finishing with intent and superb freshness. Like the best wines its able to be enjoyed in its youth... but will be at its best between 8 and 15 years from vintage and live for 2-3 decades.

94/100 Decanter: Potpourri and dried Provençale herbs on the nose. In the mouth it is rounded, immediately juicy and intense, but piercingly fresh. A pâté de fruit, red and black fruit character on the palate is accompanied by very fine but ample tannins. It's intense but lifted, structured, complete and harmonious. Very long and well balanced. All you could want in a classically-styled yet contemporary Châteauneuf.
