Wild flowers and abundant garrigue aromas with red berries and plums. The palate is succulent, energetic and lithe. Really juicy and mouthwatering, delivering ample flavor and freshness combined. Drink in 2020.

I also loved the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pied de Baud, one of the more classic, powerful wines in the lineup. Notes of melted licorice, black fruits, garrigue, and ample stony minerality all emerge from this structured, medium to full-bodied effort. It needs 2-4 years of bottle age but is a beautiful, beautiful wine that will have 15 years or more of longevity.
