The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Val De Dieu is always the most modern style wine in the lineup and in 2017 is a blend of 66% Grenache and 34% Syrah that had the Grenache brought up in demi-muids and the Syrah in new barrels. Deep, saturated purple-colored, with notes crème de cassis, ground pepper, bouquet garni, and crushed flowers, it's medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with subtle background oak and a great, great finish. It's another brilliant example of this cuvée that will benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 15 years or more. 95+
A beauty, with creamy raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors gliding atop a polished structure, while anise, bergamot, fruitcake and cinnamon notes filter through on the finish like dappled morning light. Reveals a subtle minerally echo at the very end. Thoroughly beguiling. (JM)
Bright violet. Oak-spiced cherry, dark berry and lavender scents show excellent clarity and pick up suggestions of licorice and rhubarb with aeration. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet Chambord, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors that show a suave marriage of depth and energy. Fine-grained tannins come in late on the impressively long finish, which strongly echoes the red fruit and floral notes. (JR)
A blend of two-thirds Grenache (aged in demi-muids) and one-third Syrah (aged in new barriques), the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Val de Dieu features caramel and cherries up front, with interwoven hints of menthol and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, lush and long, it's supple enough to consume young, but it should drink well for at least a decade. (JC)
