Alain Jaume & Fils Domaine Grand Veneur Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

$119

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is up with the crème de la crème of the vintage and in the same league as the perfect 2010. Awesome notes of blackberries, crème de cassis, charred meats, licorice, and violets all soar from the glass. It's powerful, opulent, and structured, with building tannin, a huge mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish, yet it never loses its sense of purity and elegance. It's an incredible achievement from this estate... Jeb Dunnuck

Dried berries and black fruit on the nose. Not to tannic, lighter than I expected with a strong finish.
