Deep bright-hued red. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries and potpourri are lent vivacity by a smoky mineral element. Sweet, palate-coating raspberry, cherry preserve, spicecake and floral pastille flavors show a suave blend of depth and energy. Displays fine delineation and finishes with superb clarity and emphatic, red-fruit-driven persistence. Raised for 17 months in large oak foudres. (JR)
A blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres makes the most of this vintage and sports incredible elegance and finesse while still packing solid depth of fruit and concentration. Beautiful notes of kirsch, licorice, toasted spices, and flowery incense all flow to a medium to full-bodied 2018 that has polished tannins and a great finish. The balance, purity, and finesse here are top notch.
Juicy and forward style, with ripe plum and black cherry compote flavors laced with black licorice and fruitcake accents, ending with echoes of black tea and warm earth. (JM)
A bit reductive and tarry at first, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres features additional notes of black olives, garrigue and ripe cherries. Full-bodied and silky-textured, it ends with a hint of mocha. (JC)
