From a single patch of 80-year-old vines in the lieu-dit of les Escondudes, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape is 95% Grenache, matured in barrel. Yet it's not oaky at all, revealing scents of black cherries and plums, plus hints of garrigue and dark chocolate. It's full-bodied, creamy and plush yet also vibrant, mouthwatering and long. It should drink well for at least a decade. (JC)
Intense, with dark fig, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors streaming through, flanked by singed apple wood and inlaid with mouthwatering licorice and fruitcake notes. Displays a sappy intensity through the finish, showing ample grip and energy. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)
