Bosquet des Papes 2016 Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

Ripe but zingy blackberry and cassis flavors are marked by bramble and peppery spices in this wine. In a vintage better known for brawn and opulence, it's a finessed, stately wine with a zesty mineral backbone and fine, upright tannins. It's still tightly wound but should open and improve through 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
