A traditional Châteauneuf, with figs, currants, and blackberry fruit framed by spice box and tobacco notes. Full-bodied with plenty of character and integrated tannins the lead to a fresh finish. Approachable now, but can develop in the cellar of the next ten years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a surprisingly forward, charming example of this cuvée that makes the most of the vintage. Possessing notes of sweet cherries, strawberries, ground herbs, pepper and rose petal, it gains richness in the glass, yet still leans heavily towards the more elegant, finesse side of the spectrum. It has beautiful purity of fruit, fine tannin and a clean, dry finish. Give it a year or two once released and drink it over the following decade.
