The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape was still in tank at the time of this tasting, and it shows slightly better this go-round than last year. Made from 50% Grenache, 20% each of Syrah and Mourvedre, and splash of Cinsault, it’s a medium-bodied, elegant and downright pretty Châteauneuf that has classic kirsch and sweet red berry fruits, spice and garrigue aromas and flavors. It shows the approachable, classic style of the vintage and will have 10-12 years of longevity.

Brilliant ruby. Emphatically fruit nose displays scents of fresh raspberry, cherry and plum. Supple and seamless in texture, offering juicy, appealingly sweet red fruit and floral pastille flavors. This very approachable wine finishes with good thrust and a touch of warmth.
