Rouge from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vallée du Rhône, France
The slow maturation of the red grapes and long vinifications provided aromatic wines with freshness and finesse. The Syrah is gorgeous and Grenache is fruity and balanced. This 2014 offers wines with lots of fruit and balance. The tannins are soft and silky, with lots of volume
Around 15°C. If possible, decant the wine.
93 Points – Jeb Dunnuck
Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal spice, this wine shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade…
96 Points – The Tasting Panel
A stunning example of this Southern Rhône blend with a smooth, earthy nose velvety texture and fruit-forward style; lovely, generous ripe black raspberry fruit and an exquisite finish.
