The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Mourre des Perdrix was scheduled to be bottled two days after my visit, so the sample was drawn from the final blend. Although I expect it will close down a bit after bottling, it was singing when I tasted it, featuring red raspberries and cherries, floral and spice notes and a plump, velvety texture. Just delicious stuff.

A blend of 70% Grenache and 15% Syrah and Mourvèdre that’s from the sandy soils around the estate, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mourre des Perdrix offers more elegance and purity, with terrific notes of incense, lavender, spice and assorted red and black fruits. It’s going to be the finest vintage of this cuvée to date and has sweet tannin, moderate acidity and a great, great finish.
