"The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape checks in as 75% Grenache, 11% each
of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and the balance Cinsault, Vaccarèse, and
Counoise. It was 60% destemmed and brought up in a mix of foudre and
concrete tanks. that offers perfumed black raspberries, violets, sweet
spice, and exotic pepper aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied,
packed with fruit, balanced, and lengthy, drink this seductive, sexy 2017
over the coming 10-15 years""

"The 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition is a top effort
for an entry-level wine. Bottled in March, it features peppery notes, dried
spices and ripe cherries on the nose. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it
finishes long and intense, adding hints of salted licorice. It should drink
well for at least a decade."

"Lurid magenta. Expansive aromas of mineral-tinged red berries, incense
and cola, joined by a suave floral nuance as the wine opens up. Appealingly
sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, cherry,
spicecake and candied licorice flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy
acidity. Finishes smooth and long, with gentle tannins and lingering floral
pastille and star anise notes.""
