With a strong floral characteristic, the wine quickly moves you to its core of raspberries, crushed stone, and white pepper. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, fresh, sweet, soft, supple, elegant and energetic, with a sweetness and purity to the kirsch from start to finish. The wine blends 90% Grenache, 8% Syrah and 2% Mourvedre. Drink from 2022-2033.

Elegant, medium-bodied, soft and silky, with a core of ripe, fresh kirsch, strawberry, flowers and wild herbs. Made from 90% old vine Grenache and assorted other allowable grape varieties, you can enjoy this now for all its delicious red berries or age it 5-7 years for more tertiary development.

Obviously young, but this is such a great style of wine, who cares? Lushly textured, with supple layers of sweet, ripe, juicy kirsch, black raspberry, wet earth, spice and garrigue. The wine is long, concentrated and fresh. Drink it now, if you like your Grenache young, or age it for secondary character and more softness.

Even better than the 2009, this super wine has it all. The fruit is fabulous. It's ripe, sweet and fresh, with layers of cherries, black raspberries and kirsch. The texture is pure lushness. The wine is balanced, rich and like all great Southern Rhone wines, you can enjoy it now, or age it for more of a secondary, evolved experience. There is no touch of heat, this is just pure Chateauneuf pleasure.

The nose, with its licorice, cherry, black raspberry, herb and wild strawberry profile is beautiful. On the palate, the wine is rich, full, deep and with darker fruit than expected. Lush and long, with ample, silky, ripe, but not overripe fruit in the finish, this is in its sweet spot.

Vibrant ruby in color, the wine pops with aromatics of kirsch, jam, charcoal, licorice and pepper. Richly textured, the sweet, fresh, strawberry, and black raspberry notes are pure and precise. Expressive, lively and supple, this is really singing at the top of its lungs today. This is a super wine in a really nice style.
