Built to impress from first glance through the last sip, this near-perfect Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a classic, elegant and incredibly complex wine with a drop-dead gorgeous core of red fruit. The full-bodied palate stays light on its feet, seducing with an ethereal texture and beautiful purity as it rolls through bright summer fruit towards a mineral-tinged finish kissed by lingering spice. Delicious now, you’ll be enjoying this over the next two decades.

Wine Spectator:
This offersa drop-dead gorgeous core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that holds center stage but still allows notes of Lapsang souchong tea, anise, incense and shiso leaf to chime in. Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish. So seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar.
