The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Blended from six different lieux-dits, it's roughly 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. The result features bright raspberry fruit, plenty of weight and richness, a supple, velvety mouthfeel and a touch of chocolate (but notably no heat) on the finish. (JC)
Ripe and focused, with lively plum, raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes that race along nicely, flecked with anise and fruitcake accents. A flash of shiso leaf adds life and cut to the finish, while the fruit streams through. Best from 2018 through 2030.
The standard blend of mostly 75% Grenache blended with 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a medium ruby color and notes of black cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers, and potpourri. Fine, elegant and seamless, with beautiful tannin quality, it's a classic, elegant 2015 to drink over the coming decade or more. (JebDunnuck.com)
