Bonpas Chateauneuf Du Pape 2017
Staff Comments: A gorgeous blend of Grenache and Mouvedre! Superfine tannins with some spice box, cedar, brambles and pure raspberries. Medium bodied and very elegant from palet to finish. Buy this now or save it for the holidays. We put it up against a $40 Napa wine, and this CDP won hands down! Serve this with a Colorado beef tenderloin or Lobster mac & Cheese.
The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape from Louis Bernard is a forward, sexy wine that's loaded with notions of black raspberries, melted licorice, earth, and spring flowers. It's ripe, medium to fullbodied, has plenty of fruit, and a good finish. It's just another terrific value from this estate. The blend is 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, brought up all in concrete tanks.
