2016 Domaine de Fontavin Trilogie  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Floral, soft and polished, with silky, polished tannins, freshness and just enough spicy, peppery, black raspberry in the finish to satisfy. The wine was produced blending 80% Grenachre, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre.

2016 Domaine de Fontavin Cuvée David et Goliat  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

Round, forward, juicy and lush, this modern styled wine pops with espresso, smoke, black cherries and spice. Lush and polished, ripe and sweet, this concentrated and complex wine can age, as well as show great in its youth, due to its round, fruit filled, open character. The wine is produced from 95% old vine Grenache and 5% Syrah and is aged in mostly, new oak barrels.

Elegant and soft, this medium bodied, lighter styled, red berry filled wine display’s some dryness in the finish.

2010 Domaine de Fontavin Cuvée David et Goliat  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Incense, licorice and jammy berries, full bodied, fresh, and balanced, but perhaps a bit too much oak in this modern adaption of Chateauneuf du Pape which leaves it feeling a little bit dry in the finish. If it comes together with time, it will be a better wine, deserving a higher score.

2009 Domaine de Fontavin Cuvée David et Goliat  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Silky, polished, forward, medium bodied and just delicious today, the wine is all about the sweet, ripe, kirsch, black raspberry and peppery notes. It is not a wine to lay down, it's going to be best over the next few years.
