After the stellar performance of this cuvée in 2015, it was reassuring to evaluate the stellar 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Heres. All Grenache raised solely in stainless steel, it shows remarkable complexity in its aromas, which combine red and black fruits, black olives and subtle herbal nuances. Full-bodied without being heavy, it's velvety and concentrated, with rich layers of soft tannins on the long finish. It should age well for up to 20 years.

From the sandy soils of the La Guardiole lieu-dit, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Heres is 100% Grenache brought up all in tank. Sporting a deeply saturated color as well as terrific notes of plums, violets, blueberries, and dried earth, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, and a great, great finish. It's elegant yet powerful and a beautiful wine.
