ESTATE PRICE! More black-fruited than the 2020, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes delivers notes of black cherries, dried spices and some chocolaty overtones. Full-bodied, round and velvety in feel, it finishes with decent length and ample concentration.
ESTATE PRICE! A classic blend of grapes based on 70% Grenache, partial destemming and no new oak for the élevage has left the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape free to express its floral and spice elements. There's lovely purity of red fruit here as well and softly dusty tannins on the finish. It's a charming, elegant wine to drink over the next decade.
ESTATE PRICE! The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos Saint Patrice shows a great sense of tension and elegance in its combination of ripe cherries and cool herbs. Full-bodied and silky in texture, without any obvious oak, it showcases the finesse and balance the appellation is capable of.
