Château Fortia 2017 Cuvée du Baron Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

This perfumed blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (35%) and Mourvèdre (15%) fills the glass with plumes of brooding black fruit, anise and lavender. Compared with the producer's more peppy Tradition bottling, it's a massively concentrated, brooding sip edged by firm, gripping tannins. It needs a bit of time but should drink gorgeously from 2023 to 2037. Anna Lee C. Iijima
