Vivid ruby-red. Highly perfumed red and dark berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave floral nuance with air. Supple, open-knit and juicy on the palate, offering deeply concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of five-spice powder. The floral quality repeats strongly on a smooth, impressively persistent finish that shows just a hint of supple, fine-grained tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019)

Really good Chateauneuf-du-Pape, word is that 2016 is a legendary vintage and trying this I would say I’ve never experienced such a young wine of this varietal with so much depth and complexity. Great nose, really smooth on the palate and loads of cherry, spice, leather and floral elements with a hint of Pernod style aniseed on the finish. For $45 I think this is outstanding, it has a high alcohol content for French wine so may not be a long termer but it’s great so just enjoy now.
