The reticent nose requires coaxing before you find all the honeysuckle, orange peel, banana, white peach and citrus notes. Fresh, lush, rich and balanced between sweet and crisp, with a tint of roasted nuts in the endnote, this is great now, and it should be even better with a year or two of cellaring.

With one of the higher percentages of Mourvedre as well as Syrah in Chateauneuf du Pape, this stylish wine explodes with licorice, dark berries with hints of blue fruits and coffee bean in the perfume. Powerful, rich and character filled, the wine is silky, sweet and lush. There is some noticeable oak, but that would come together with time.
