2018 Vignobles Mayard La Crau de ma Mère  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

Medium-bodied, spicy and fresh, with an earthiness and touch of brett on the nose, clearly the wine offers depth, richness and layers of ripe, red, peppery fruit on the palate and in the finish to end things quite nicely.

When to Drink Vignobles Mayard, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Vignobles Mayard can be enjoyed on the young side. Young vintages can be decanted for about 1 hour, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Vignobles Mayard is usually better with 3-5 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages the wine should be consumed within 5-15 years after the vintage.
