From some of the appellation's cooler sites and 60- to 80-year-old vines, the 100% Grenache 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Colombis is a stunner. It has a true sense of garrigue, along with dark fruit, peppery spice and rich, velvety tannins. I wouldn't turn down a glass now, but it should be even better in a few years' time. (JC)
The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Colombis is a more open, sexy wine based on very old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Colombis, Cristia and Rayas lieux-dits. Framboise, incense, potpourri and floral notes all emerge from this pretty, elegant, complex Grenache that has sweet fruit, polished tannins and a great finish. Like all the 2015s, it's made in a more elegant style, yet still packs ample fruit. I’d happily drink bottles anytime over the coming 10-15 years. (JebDunnuck.com)
Offers gorgeous mouthfeel, with very fine-grained tannins thoroughly embedded into the core of crushed blackberry, raspberry puree and plum pâte de fruit flavors. Mouthwatering licorice snap, black tea and graphite notes drive the finish, adding serious length and depth. Integrated enough to be tempting now, but this will deliver much more after cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM, Web-2017)
Lurid ruby. Highly fragrant scents of ripe red berries, Indian spices, garrigue and candied flowers; a smoky mineral element builds steadily in the glass. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining black raspberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that show a suave marriage of depth and vivacity. Closes spicy, gently tannic and impressively long, leaving lingering notes of emphatic red berry, allspice and floral pastille behind. (JR)
