A bouquet nose of garrigue, flowers of cistus, blackcurrant buds. A mouth full of freshness and balance, with aro- mas of cocoa and morello cherry, with a long and liquorice finish. In its youth, this vintage is perfect to pair with a shoulder of lamb 12 hr cooking in oven, roast pigeon with fungi porcini and from its fifth year, stew, Daube Provencal, all game and many cheeses.

Moving to the reds and based on 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, and the rest Cinsault and Counoise, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape shows the vintage beautifully with its upfront, Provençal, incredibly charming personality. Loaded with ripe cherry and more red berry fruits as well as plenty of peppery garrigue and spice, it's medium-bodied and has light tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. It's already impossible to resist, and I suspect it will be best enjoyed over the coming 10-12 years.
