Loaded with scents of roses and exotic spices, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a super entry-level effort. It's 85% Grenache aged in concrete, with the balance Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah that's aged in demi-muids. Full-bodied, velvety and long, it delivers opulent black raspberry fruit framed by silky tannins.

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a good introduction into the wines of this estate. Darker fruits, scorched earth, chocolate, and obvious minerality all emerge from this rich, structured, tannic 2016 that's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 10-15 years.
