Brilliant ruby. Pungent dark berry, licorice and garrigue aromas are energized by a hint of white pepper. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and blood orange flavors that show very good structure and depth. Closes long and spicy, displaying lingering dark fruit character, building tannins and a touch of succulent herbs. (JR)
Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a vibrant ruby color as well as an elegant, classic, pure style that just begs to be drunk. Garrigue, dried herbs, dried flowers, currants and kirsch-like aromas and flavors all emerge from this outstanding beauty that can be drunk today with plenty of pleasure or cellared for a decade. I’ve written so many glowing reviews on the wines of Clos Saint Jean I sometimes feel like a broken record. Nevertheless, this estate continues to go from strength to strength and has yet to make a misstep since I’ve been reviewing the wines. (JebDunnuck.com)
The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is an intense, powerful wine that shows a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish. That said, it's still a fine effort, bursting with scents of garrigue and loaded with red plums. The tannins are supple, so there's no need to age this one. (JC)
