This 2019 vintage is a pure marvel from a combination of 70-year-old (90%) and 50-year-old Mourvèdre (10%).
Tasting note: Châteauneuf-du-Pape perfectly pitched between richness, freshness, robustness and femininity, velvet and minerality.
The tradmark, old-vine-grenache offering of earthy notes with wild berries, herbs, flowers and spices. Wild. Hints of blood oranges and pink-grapefruit peel. Superb, expansive palate shape, all finesse and length. Super-fine, focused and elegant. Refined, regal and majestic. Peppery, bright, wild, red fruit, blood oranges and orange bitters. Decades ahead of this. Drink of hold.
The 2020 vintage has been rated 94-95/100 by James Suckling:
"94-95. This beautiful red from the Rhône will delight lovers of Burgundy. A fragrant Châteauneuf, in which the Grenache shows its floral side. So juicy, yet it slips on your palate, the balance of creamy richness and elegant tannins is perfect. Long, graceful and delicate finish. Blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre".
Le Conseil de 12bouteilles : A sublime Cru from the southern Rhône appellation, signed by the Brunier family. To open 2 hours before tasting on a piece of meat or game.
