Domaine de Mourchon - Châteauneuf du pape

Colour: Red
Country: france
Producer: domaine de mourchon
Grape: grenache Mourvedre
Region: rhone
Appellation: chateauneuf du pape


The 2016 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah) is one of the finest to date, and while I normally find that the Châteauneuf- Du-Pape lags the flagship Séguret releases, that’s not the case in 2016. This ruby coloured effort offers an elegant, seamless, medium to full-bodied style as well as a rocking perfume of black cherries, currants, spice box, dried herbs, and dried flowers. It has fabulous intensity and depth, yet still glides across the palate with no sensation of weight, silky tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It’s already approachable but will keep for 10-15 years.
