From barrel, the sensationally rich and concentrated 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (50% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah aged in concrete tanks and small barrels) is more polished, elegant and seamless, with blockbuster notes of ripe black fruits, crushed herbs, pepper, plums and violets. You almost need a fork to drink this beauty, yet it’s never heavy or over the top, has incredible purity and present, ripe tannin. I followed this bottle for two days and it only got better with air. Châteauneuf du Pape lovers shouldn’t miss it! This sensational estate consistently produces some of the top whites of the appellation (in addition to the reds), and they’ve done well in 2015. (JD)
The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielle Vignes carries a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a classic bouquet of black raspberries, ground pepper, garrigue and hints of graphite. Gorgeously pure, elegant and seamless on the palate, with building tannin, it's impeccably balanced and shows the best of this vintage. (JebDunnuck.com)
(40 percent raised in concrete vats and the rest in small new and used oak barrels) Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, incense and vanilla, along with an exotic Moroccan spice nuance. Sweet, expansive and velvety in texture, offering deeply concentrated yet energetic boysenberry and black raspberry flavors and a sexy lavender pastille flourish. The vanilla and floral notes repeat emphatically on an impressively long, supple finish, which leaves behind a sweet dark fruit note.
