Clos Des Papes Châteauneuf-Du-Pape
“Sumptuous aroma: rich in fruit but with a fine peppery nose that is almost more northern than Southern Rhône. On the palate too I would have thought this was majority Syrah. Super-refined texture and lovely freshness. Brilliant wine with a long future but, amazingly, delicious now in an embryonic sort of way. Drink 2018 – 2030.”
