|Brand||Domaine Roger Perrin|
In this wine, blueberry and blackberry flavors are concentrated but crisp, shaded by savory nuances of balsamic vinegar and char. It's bold and weighty on the palate, with a rich, velvety texture and ripe, chewy tannins that hold a firm grip to the finish. Enjoy now-2028
Deep vivid red. Musky cherry, ripe dark berries and building garrigue and floral qualities on the fragrant nose. Sappy and energetic in the mouth, offering spice-tinged black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of licorice that comes in slowly. Finishes incisive, gently tannic and quite long, displaying a hint of candied flowers and energizing spiciness.
Kirsch, black cherries, dried herbs, and garrigue notes all emerge from the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which is medium to full-bodied, silky and seamless on the palate. It's another pure, classic, balanced wine from this great vintage.
