Impressive assessment of the 2016 vintage Chateauneuf du Pape, placing the vintage in the company of the very finest vintages of CDP in the last 40 years recalling 1978, 1990, 2007, and 2010. It is no surprise that collectors have been buying 2016 aggressively upon release, as you did with 2010. This is a vintage that can age but will reward early on as well. Irresistible. Global demand is evident, and stressing the market already. Now is the time to secure your allocations.

A prodigious effort, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale was yet to be bottled during my June visit. It offers up sweet floral aromas, hints of thyme and rosemary and bold cherry fruit. Full-bodied and creamy-velvety in texture, it's a hugely seductive mouthful of wine that I found difficult to spit. If it emerges from the bottling process looking like this, buyers will have huge smiles on their faces.
