“Cristia estate 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) comes all from the Cristia lieu-dit (all sandy soils) and was destemmed and brought up mostly in concrete. I always find this cuvée forward and ready to go, yet the 2016 is tighter and more backward, with medium to full body, good acidity, and traditional notes of blackberries, plums, peppery spice, and garrigue. “

Beschrijving

Professional reviews:

Vinous: “Dark bright-hued red. Scents of ripe red berries, garrigue, woodsmoke and licorice, joined by a floral topnote that builds in the glass. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering gently sweet raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen on the back half. Smooth and floral on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves a subtle white pepper note behind.” 92/100 pts
