Tasting Notes

An impressive pure Grenache from la Crau (ouest), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Larmes Papales aged entirely in demi-muids. Yet the delicacy of its garrigue aromas persist, entwined among silky cherries and raspberries. It's full-bodied but leaves a light impression on the palate, it's pretty fruit underscored by hints of pencil shavings on the long, elegant finish. It's a terrific effort from this largely unheralded producer.
