Very silky in feel, with beguiling rooibos tea, bergamot and blood orange accents sitting atop the large core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit. Everything is in lockstep through the finish, where buried minerality adds the final touch. (JM)
Lurid ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the explosively perfumed nose, complicated by hints of smoky minerals, incense and potpourri. Palate-staining, spice-laced cherry and black raspberry flavors show impressive depth and clarity, and a spine of juicy acidity provides lift and focus. Finishes extremely long and sweet, delivering solid thrust, a hint of candied flowers and suave, harmonious tannins. (JR)
The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape L'Avenue comes from another single parcel close to the estate and is 100% Grenache raised all in demi-muids. It has a juicy, fresh, lively style to go with notes of strawberries, mint, sappy green herbs and flowers. It has fine, polished tannin, full-bodied richness and the same weightless, elegant style present in all these wines. This is another great lineup from Chateau de Vaudieu, who have risen to the top of the heap recently. They make a perfumed, elegant style of wine, and have started releasing numerous single parcel wine from vines all located around the estate. (JebDunnuck.com)
Another micro-production wine (less than 300 cases), the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape l'Avenue is entirely Grenache from the lieu-dit Vaudieu, aged in demi-muids. Loaded with attractive notes of flowering garrigue and ripe cherries, it's full-bodied and creamy in texture on the palate, then glides to a long, spicy-peppery finish. (JC)
