From a single exposed hilltop parcel this blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% each Cinsault and Vaccarèse has immaculate aromatics, old-vine intensity on the palate, and sheer Grenache hedonism. This is not to be missed. Hop on this one and get the leg of lamb roasting! We will receive only 10 cases.
Deep ruby-colored and offering a heavenly bouquet of black raspberries, toasted spiced, cured meats, licorice, and cured meats, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combes des Fous is awesome on the palate, with a silky, seamless profile that just keeps on going. Possessing ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges, and a huge finish, it’s a phenomenal bottle of wine. The fact that it was bottled just one month ago makes this showing even more impressive.
