The crème of the lineup and made from the normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, aged in 20% new demi-muids, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reserve is a full-bodied, polished and elegant example of this cuvée that offers lots of toasted spices, black raspberry and cassis fruit, beautifully ripe tannin and a great finish. I’d like to see a touch more mid-palate depth and concentration, but this is flat out gorgeous nonetheless.

Youthful violet. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe blueberry, Indian spices, candied lavender and sandalwood, and a zesty mineral overtone gains strength as the wine stretches out. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet red and blue fruit flavors that show impressive depth as well as vivacity, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The extremely long, floral-driven finish is given shape by fine-grained tannins that are quickly absorbed by the intense, concentrated fruit.
