A true 'wow' wine, the deep, concentrated 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hauts-Lieux (there's 20% Mourvèdre) offers awesome notes of blackcurrants, smoked meats, graphite, crushed rocks, and licorice. Extraordinarily concentrated, perfectly balanced, structured, and long, it's another sensational wine from this estate. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age and will cruise for 15-20 after that.
Intense, featuring a hefty core of dark currant, fig and blackberry confiture flavors, meshed with bittersweet cocoa, smoldering tobacco and warm earth notes. Tarry grip supports the finish, while a mouthwatering garrigue streak drives through. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2022 through 2040. (JM)
From three high altitude parcels close to the limestone plateau, with some clay in the mix. It's darker and more aromatically brooding compared to his Trois Sources, fuller-bodied with really concentrated and inky fruit. It is very fresh and lively too, with mineral grit and a minty kick on the finish. This has a larger tannic load and is a bigger, more ageworthy wine. (MW)
Brilliant ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet features fresh, mineral-tinged red berry liqueur, lavender and incense scents, and mineral and Asian spice flourishes add complexity. Pliant and seamless on the palate, showing a superb blend of density and energy to the sweet Chambord, cherry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors. Fine-grained, building tannins give shape to the strikingly long, vibrant finish, which emphatically echoes the red fruit and floral notes. (JR)
Medicinal, lifted, aromatic and yet there is a lot of fruit density on the nose too. Delicious bramble fruit with a just-picked freshness. Very firm but fine, sandy tannic grip. Powerful and long-lived. 17.5/20 points. (RH)
