The top wine from this estate, this blend of Grenache and Mouvèdre from 100-year-old vines is simply gorgeous. Driven by finesse and elegance, the nose is harmonious kirsch, licorice, graphite and underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate is layered and concentrated, with richness and power kept always in careful balance. This is at its peak now, so pop and enjoy!

Château Mourre du Tendre has three hectares of vines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the lieu-dits of La Crau, La Guigasse and Saintes-Vierges, all in sandy terroirs. Kirsch, leather, peppery herbs and dried herbs all emerge from the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Tres Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Prestige, which is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, yet surprisingly elegant and seamless on the palate. Classic, with tons of the garrigue and herbs of the region, it has terrific tannin quality, no hard edges, and a great finish. This cuvée is 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in concrete and larger foudre for three years.
