So stunningly delicious, especially considering the price, this shows the real strength of Montfaucon's winemaking. Sumptuously textured with tannins already showing like velvet, it strikes a brilliant balance between ripe fruit, roasted spices and firm structure. It provides everything I want out of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape with no added frills or distractions - just pure enjoyment. Though it drinks beautifully now, I eagerly await its development in bottle, as I know it will evolve exquisitely; I will, however, revisit it at many points on its long journey.
