2015 Bosquet des Papes La Folie  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 94

The debut vintage from Bosquet des Papes of La Folie was produced from 80% old vine Grenache and 20% Mourvedre. Explosive aromatics are set off with smoky oak, once past the wood, the wine displays spicy, dark red berries, hints of blue fruit, earth and spice. Full bodied, powerful, long and concentrated, the wine is a bit too present at the moment making this not fun to enjoy young. But there is the structure and a wealth of fruit, along with ample tannins to allow for some real age on this wine. This will be a beauty with a few years of age.
