Château Maucoil 2017 L'Esprit de Maucoil Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Packed with luscious black cherry and preserved strawberry flavors, this Grenache-based blend of 13 regional grape varieties is sourced from the estate's oldest vines, averaging 70 years. Matured 12 months in oak (30% new barriques), it's profoundly fruity but calibrated by vital hits of red currant acidity and a smoky, mineral undertone that's quite sexy. A bit unwieldy in youth but should drink at peak from 2022 to 2030 and hold further still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
