The more modern-styled 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Gaston Philippe gives up more cassis, smoky oak, graphite, and charred earth aromas and flavors. More spice and floral notes develop with time in the glass, it's full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, with sweet tannin and a great finish. It's not for traditionalists out there but is a brilliant wine that's going to keep for two decades. 95+
Displays an array of intense black and blue fruit, floral and exotic spice qualities on the deeply perfumed nose, along with suggestions of vanilla, roasted coffee and licorice. In a distinctly substantial style, offering palate-staining blueberry, cherry-cola, floral pastille and fruitcake flavors that show super depth and alluring sweetness. Broad, velvety tannins make a late appearance on a strikingly long, floral-tinged finish that echoes the vanilla and spice notes. Give this one a good amount of age to allow its lumber component a chance to tone itself down. (JR)
