Staff Comments: Beautiful deep red with the purple edge. Aromas of black cherries,plum and Cedar. Savory notes of black and red mountain fruits with touches of forest floor. Velvet textures with medium tannins. Lots of cherry on the finished balanced by Cedar and spice.
A whiff of violet introduces ripe but pristine blackberries and cherries in this fleshy but delightful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s sleek and silky on the palate yet anchored by firm granite tones and fine, taut tannins that reverberate through an extended finish. Irresistible already it is likely to gain finesse and depth well through 2035.
Densely fruited, with layers of red currant, raspberry and plum fruit paste flavors that stretch out slowly, unveiling notes of cedar, garrigue, brick dust and incense. A warm stone detail drives the finish, accented by well-buried acidity that keeps all the elements fresh and defined within the old-school rubric. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2036. 3,700 cases made, 800 cases imported. — JM
Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit scents are complicated by suggestions of garrigue, licorice and white pepper. Spicy and focused on the palate, displaying vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors along with a building smoky nuance. Finishes with resonating spiciness, a suggestion of Chambord and youthfully chewy tannins. Drinking Window: 2023-2030.
A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in a mix of stainless steel and old barrels, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Clos du Roi is a ripe, sexy wine. Dried cherries, blackberries, loamy soil, and hints of cured meats give way to a rounded, supple, elegant 2016 that has moderate tannin and good length. Drink it over the coming decade.
