Brotte 2018 Les Hauts de Barville Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Dusty tangs of basalt juxtapose perfumed black cherry and raspberry on the nose of this plush red composed predominantly of Grenache and Syrah. Matured with no new-oak influences, it offers ripe but pure cassis and plum flavors shaded by hints of sun-dried garrigue and fine, sandpapery tannins. This elegant, slightly restrained Châteauneuf-du-Pape is ready now but should improve through 2028 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
