Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine in the vintage, and Marc compares it to the 2012. I'm not sure I agree, but there's no denying the quality in this 2014. Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal spice, it shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.
Wine Tasting Notes
This year Syrah and Mourvedre presented beautifully. Harvested at perfect maturity, the Grenache brings power and body to this vintage. This vintage has more of a northern style than southern. Rich, deep colors, the nose has complex notes of black fruit and cocoa, tobacco and mild spices. The mouth is full-bodied and long, the tannins are rich and soft with a beautiful persistent finish.
Cinsault 5%, Grenache 30%, Mourvedre 30%, Counoise 10%, Syrah 10% and Vaccarèse, Terret Noir, Muscardin, Clairette, Picpoul, Picardan, Bourboulenc, Roussanne 15%
