Brilliant ruby-red. Suave, highly perfumed scents of raspberry liqueur, smoky minerals, candied flowers and Asian spices. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering intense, well-delineated red fruit and floral pastille flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Alluringly sweet and energetic, displaying strong finishing persistence and just a hint of dusty tannins.

Aromas and flavors of raspberry and cherry preserves stream from the core, with notes of violet, anise and bergamot filling in. Offers an elegant, mineral-edged finish. Drink now through 2022. 300 cases imported.

A step up on the richness scale from the les Premices, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Tradition (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) has impressive amounts of black cherry and strawberry fruit, white pepper, incense and violets. This medium-bodied, ultra-pure, elegant, yet mid-weight Châteauneuf du Pape has lots to love, but will need drinking in its first 5-7 years of life.
