Clos de L'Oratoire des Papes 2017 Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Initial notes of dried garrigue and crushed earth open into rich, ripe blackberry and black plum on the nose of this elegant red. A blend of 80% Grenache supplemented by Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, it's a gripping, intensely black-fruited wine, with a firm mineral undertone. It needs a bit more time to meld, but should drink at peak from 2022 to 2030 and hold longer still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
