"Loaded with scents of roses and exotic spices, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a super entry-level effort. It's 85% Grenache aged in concrete, with the balance Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah that's aged in demi-muids. Full-bodied, velvety and long, it delivers opulent black raspberry fruit framed by silky tannins."

"Vivid ruby-red. Expressive red and dark berry scents are complemented by white pepper, _ garrigue_ and floral pastille nuances. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors and a touch of lavender. Smooth, harmonious tannins build slowly on a very long, seamless finish that leaves behind floral and juicy dark berry notes."
