The deeper, richer 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve des Deux Freres is 100% Grenache that’s aging in 60% new and once-used barrels. Inky colored, full-bodied, massively concentrated and layered, it has a modern slant, yet still screams Southern Rhône with its cassis, caramelized dark fruits, roasted garrigue and licorice aromas and flavors. Like the Mon Aïeul, it’s elegant, impeccably balanced, and has sweet tannin. Give bottles 4-6 years in the cellar and drink over the following 10-15 years.
