The only 2013 presented (I reviewed his two Côtes du Rhône from barrel last year) and a pretty, perfumed wine from Bravey, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape (93% Grenache, 2% Syrah, 2% Mourvèdre, 2% Bourboulenc and 1% Cinsault) offers lots of wild strawberry and darker berry fruits, lavender, underbrush and mint on the nose. Medium-bodied, seamless and elegant with a layered, silky style that makes it already hard to resist, it will still be better with short term cellaring and drink well through 2025.

Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, mineral-tinged raspberry and lavender pastille aromas pick up a pungent note of garrigue with air and show excellent clarity. Sappy, penetrating and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of white pepper. The mineral note echoes on the impressively persistent, subtly sweet finish, which is framed by suave, fine-grained tannins.
