While I wasn’t able to taste the traditional cuvée, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Secrets de Pignan certainly delivers the goods. Coming from the Pignan lieu-dit, located in the center of the appellation, just beside Rayas, destemmed and aged all in stainless steel, it offers a beautiful, singular style in its blackberry, currant, leafy herbs, thyme, and olive scented bouquet. This carries to a full-bodied, sexy Grenache that has loads of fruit, terrific purity and a blockbuster finish. Drink this sensational 2015 anytime over the coming 10-15 years. (JebDunnuck.com)
Vivid ruby. Complex array of red and blue fruit preserve and floral scents, plus hints of incense, vanilla and candied licorice. Stains the palate with primary black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Concentrated, sappy and seamless on the extremely long finish, which features velvety, harmonious tannins and a sneaky touch of vanilla. (JR)
The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan is all Grenache, all from Pignan (Nord), all made and matured in stainless steel, so it delivers tons of fruit in every sip. Yet the swirls of blueberries, cherries and stone fruit seem nearly weightless in the mouth, framed by the finest, silkiest tannins and elegantly fading away in a warm dusting of spice. (JC)
