Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine from Jean-Paul Daumen that tastes like the essence of this stunning terroir.
Sandy soils have produced a bright, open and dynamic wine with aromas of damson, plum and a touch of liquorice. It's medium-bodied with really powerful, piercing acidity, and shows more liquorice on the palate along with some internal sweetness and super-bright fruits. The alcohol is a little raised but it's a very clean, vivid and tense wine. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028. (MW)
Cask sample. Incredibly pure blackberry jam fruit, excellent spicy quality and superbly glossy texture. Rich, dense and firmly tannic on the palate, but the fruit is already in pristine condition, with juicy, ready-to-drink accessibility. Impeccable, polished primary character and long, fibrous finish. (RH) 17.5/20 points
