Tasting Notes:
Black fruits and liquorice dominate the nose and palate. Some lovely spice and good mouthfeel. A lingering finish.

All wines from this estate

Drinking Dates:
2022 to 2040
60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 25% other varieties from more than 100 parcels around the appellation.

8% from 2015 for structure and solidity. 76% from 2016 for finesse, length and salinity. It is the backbone of the cuvée. 14% from 2017 for concentration, notes of black fruits and saffron. 2% reserve wine from the previous Reserve X XII XV cuvée

Clay-limestone with stony areas
The vinification was done with particular care to preserve elegance and finesse. Manual harvesting, de-stemming and sorting of grapes. Light handling of the grapes during vinification and no mechanical extraction during fermentation to promote a gentle diffusion of aromas, colour and to respect the tannins.
Critic Reviews:
'The NV Châteauneuf Du Pape Reserve XV XVI XVII comes primarily from the magical 2016 vintage with smaller amounts from 2015 and 2017. It offers an extraordinary nose of blackcur- rants, ground pepper, garrigue, and crushed violets. Rich, full-bodied, and incredibly seamless, with a stacked mid-palate, this is Châteauneuf Du Pape brilliance all the way. It’s terrific today yet will keep for 15+ years.' 97/100 (Jeb Dunnock)
