Chateauneuf du Pape 18
It has bright acidity, medium-bodied richness and moderate concentration to go with lots of black cherries, wild herbs, leather and hints of flowers on the nose. Overall, this is a classy, elegant wine from the estate that will keep for 8-10 years.
"Creamy textured plum and raspberry sauce notes glide through, flecked with black tea and pastis flavours and framed by a subtle apple wood hint. Flattering in feel, but shows latent cut and drive, so there’s no rush. Best from 2020 through 2034.— 2,500 cases imported " 93/100 JM Wine Spectator May 2019
