The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape—a blend of 70% Grenache, 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties—will spend a full two years in foudres prior to bottling. It's a full-bodied, rich and velvety wine, with layers of dark fruit resembling cola and black cherries and a touch of ground spices on the long finish. It should be a beauty.
One of my favorite growers in Chateauneuf. "Old school" CDP always balanced-never too heavy and amazing price to quality ratio
