This is fermented in concrete then aged in both concrete and various sizes and ages of oak barrel, including a non-intrusive 10% portion in new oak. It's relatively pale in colour, with beautifully clear and bright aromatics, showing no sign of surmaturité. Rounded and medium-bodied in style, it has piercing acidity and measured, snappy young tannins. Well balanced and well put together without excess extraction, this is a bright, highly drinkable, refreshing style. (MW)
A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Hauts De Barville has a perfumed, exotic bouquet of sweet berry fruits, violets, and spring flowers. Medium-bodied, plush, elegant and silky, with fine tannins, it's a charming, layered, sexy 2017 to enjoy over the coming decade or so.
Potent blackberry and raspberry preserves are edged by a balsamic glaze in this languid red. It's a succulent, densely concentrated wine, but poised with fresh acidity and a nervy, mineral finish. The tannins are fine and quite glossy. *Editors' Choice* (AI)
This has some intense ripe and rich fruit on offer with a tarry, oak-laced edge and a rich palate that has a wealth of plush, ripe dark fruit.
Ripe and silky in feel, with raspberry and plum compote notes that glide through, supported by light sandalwood, garrigue and tea notes. A subtle mineral streak adds length and lift through the finish. (JM)
Deep vivid red. Lively red and dark berry scents are complemented by suggestions of pungent flowers and garrigue. Fleshy, mineral-accented raspberry and bitter cherry flavors deepen and become sweeter with air while maintaining energy. Finishes very long and juicy, with repeating red fruit character and supple, harmonious tannins lending discreet grip. (JR)
Rich and velvety, yet also fresh and mouthwatering, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hauts de Barville is 70% Grenache and 15% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. Licorice, plum and black cherry flavors all come together in a full-bodied wine that's meant to be consumed young, meaning over the next 7-8 years. (JC)
