(made from destemmed fruit; raised in concrete tanks for the Grenache and small oak barrels for the Mourvèdre and Syrah) Saturated ruby. Fresh, smoke-accented cherry, red berry and floral aromas are complicated and sharpened by a spicy element. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering red fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors and hints of lavender and smoky minerals that build with air. Closes sappy and quite long, showing youthful tannic grip and a resonating floral note.
The classic blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah brought up in new barrels and concrete tanks, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines is a cuvée that's much more elegant and seamless today than in the past. Cured meats, ripe red and black fruits, garrigue, and graphite notes all emerge from this balanced, structured wine that has beautiful purity and length. There's plenty of tannins, so give it a few years. (JebDunnuck.com)
The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah aged in a mix of concrete tanks and small barrels) has fabulous notes of crème de cassis, blackberry jam, roasted herbs and graphite. Full-bodied, ultra-pure and with incredibly polished tannin, it’s up with some of the best vintage of this cuvée to date. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring and have two decades of longevity. 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)
