Description

Lastly, the 2019 Ch teauneuf Du Pape Reserve is another magical wine, and I might have rated this cuv e a perfect score more than any other Southern Rh ne. Unquestionably in the same realm as the 2017, 2016, 2010, 2005, 2003, and 2001, it has an incredible, full-bodied, massive style that somehow stays perfectly balanced, with flawless integration of its fruit, tannins, acidity, and alcohol. Lots of red, blue, and black fruits, loamy earth, Asian spice, licorice, and violet nuances emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, building yet polished tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s a sexier, more opulent wine than the Les Hauts-Lieux release yet has the same perfect tannins that are so rare to find in the vintage. This required at least 4-5 years of bottle age and will drink brilliantly for 20-25+ years. Gorgeous palate expression, wonderfully fine tannins. The alcohol is high this year, you do feel it, there is a lovely freshness however, and very good length. Not a perfect wine, but a beautiful one. Selection from Les Trois Sources, their oldest Grenache. Around 90% Grenache, plus Syrah and Cinsault. Only produced when the Grenache is balanced enough.
