The classic 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in at around 75% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and a splash of Cinsault. This rock star traditional cuvée gives up loads of black licorice, garrigue, black raspberries, and kirsch liqueur. It's powerful and full-bodied, yet elegant and seamless, with fine tannin, no hard edges, and a great finish. Despite the richness and weight, it stays weightless and elegant, with silky tannin. Don't miss it.
Attractive freshness and power, this typifies much of what is great about the 2016 vintage. It carries the ripeness well. Dark berries and flowers lead to ripe plums and succulent, long tannins carrying abundant, ripe, dark fruit. Blows out big flavor on the finish. Drink or hold.
Deep crimson. Expansive aromas of raspberry liqueur, garrigue and licorice, plus a smoky mineral topnote that adds urgency. Takes on darker fruit character with aeration, showing impressive concentration as well as vibrant, spicy lift to the bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors. The floral note comes back strong on the impressively long finish, which is given shape by smooth, well-knit tannins. (JR)
The nose of plum, damson, strawberry and garrigue herbs marks this out as very much a classic, young Châteauneuf. Full-bodied but fresh, it has powerful tannic weight. Well balanced through to the savoury finish. Drinking Window 2019-2026. (MW)
A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape is full-bodied, rich and round. Despite being a touch on the warm side, it's deceptively easy to drink, with sexy flavors of raspberries and chocolate that glide to a smooth, lingering finish. (JC)
