2017 Chateau Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Rouge (750ml)

Grenache from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône, France


The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Clos De L'Oratoire Des Papes (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre and other permitted varieties) reveals a ruby/purple color as well as notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, earthy garrigue, and dried soil notes. Rounded, supple, and sexy on the palate, it has terrific fruit, ripe tannins, and a classic, focused texture. It's already upfront and ready to go, yet I suspect it will keep for a decade.

90 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2019)
