Clos du Mont-Olivet Le Petit Mont Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Ratings on Delectable

Jordan Wardlaw Delectable Pro

There is nothing petite about the 2016 Petit Mont. Brooding and virile with muscularity and swagger, it also reveals a surprising number of layers and dimensions. Effusive, briary black raspberry fruit pushed forward on the nose along with garrigue and spice. But the lasting impression on my palate is one of intensely savory and stony minerality, framing the fruit and spice character very well with a foundation of cottony tannin. These elements bring the alcohol into balance. Very harmonious despite the hedonistic style.
