The star of the show is the 100% Grenache 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan. Coming all from sandy soils, it has a polished, classy style in its blueberry, plum sauce, toasted spice and licorice-dominated bouquet. Seeming to show some oak (although I believe this is aged all in tank) and some modern qualities, it stays beautifully balanced and is medium to full-bodied, thrillingly pure, seamless, and has building tannin that emerge on the finish. It’s a fabulous expression of Grenache to drink over the coming decade. (JD)
Deep ruby. Ripe, deeply pitched black and blue fruit aromas are energized by notes of white pepper and smoky minerals. Expansive, palate-staining boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors gain in spiciness with air. At once rich and lively, with supple tannins giving shape and thrust to the finish. (JR)
