All the 2017s from this estate are brilliant wines, and the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape should be purchased by the case. It offers a ripe, sexy style as well as complex notes of ripe red and black currants, graphite, melted licorice, and incense. With ripe tannins and a layered, elegant texture, it’s a terrific example of the style of the vintage and will keep for 10-15 years.

With slightly more pronounced tannins than most vintages, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape should be set aside for a year or two and then consumed over the following decade. It offers fresh, vibrant blackberry and blueberry flavors, a full-bodied, velvety-textured palate and a long, tannic finish tinged with orange zest.

A silky and perfumy style, with alluring raspberry and cherry coulis flavors, lined with subtle shiso leaf, incense and lavender notes. Graceful finish. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.
