Description

Quantity is down nearly half in 2017 due to bad weather at flowering drastically reducing the yield of Grenache meaning higher percentages than usual for other varieties resulting in darker more intense wines. Also selection of the juices is more rigorous than ever at Mont-Redon in recent vintages taking the quality higher each vintage.
’Deep glistening magenta. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, potpourri and smoky minerals accented by an exotic Moroccan spice quality. Shows impressive depth as well as energy on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors; an undercurrent of juicy acidity adds lift and back-end cut. Finishes sweet, gently tannic and very long, leaving behind mineral, garrigue and cherry liqueur notes.’ 94-95 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous

”I loved the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape from barrel last year, and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. Revealing a deeper ruby/purple color as well as a killer bouquet of crème de cassis, ground pepper, candied violets, garrigue, and a touch of graphite, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a rich, concentrated, structured mouthfeel, and a great finish. It needs 2-4 years of bottle age and will evolve nicely for 15-20 years or more.” 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck
