Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône Valley, France
80% Grenache, 20% Syrah, Mouvèdre & Cinsault
A traditional Chateauneuf, with figs, currants, and blackberry fruit framed by spice box and tobacco notes. Full-bodied with plenty of character and integrated tannins that lead to a fresh finish. -Winemaker's Notes
94pts - James Suckling
"A beautifully crafted wine that has a deeply fragrant rose and red berry nose. The purity of grenache sings brightly. In the mouth it offers a fluid, even-paced and smoothly structured impression. Deceptive power, too."
91pts - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a classic example of this estate and it has a tight, focused, nicely structured vibe, with lots of leather, Provencal herbs, pepper and sweet red and black fruits. I love its balance and purity, but like all vintages of Mont Olivet, it will need cellaring to show its potential."
