This is a balanced, elegant and vivid Chateauneuf du Pape. Weighing in at 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, this vintage has a powerful bouquet of blackberries, chocolate, toasted spices and graphite. The French-oak aging smolders throughout in this beautifully polished, brilliantly traditional cuvee. A perfect blend of old-school charm with a modern edge, drink now through 2035.

Wine Spectator:
Black cherry and blackberry fruit leads the way here, followed quickly by subtle notes of bay leaf, singed cedar, warm earth and chestnut. The smoldering finish has good grip, showing some old-school character. Best from 2020 through 2035.
