Aromas of ripe raspberry, red plum and cherry, with herbs, pepper and a whole bunch of sappiness, too. The palate has radiant, regal tannins in fine proportion. Super fresh. Best from 2020.

Pungent aromas of ripe red fruit, licorice, potpourri and black cardamom carry a bright mineral overtone. Pliant, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors, a hint of spicecake and impressive back-end energy. Fine-grained tannins add shape and gentle grip to an extremely long, floral- and spice-driven finish. - Josh Raynolds

With all of its power and richness, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a huge step above the regular bottling. Subtle cinnamon dusts slices of stone fruit and ripe cherries on the nose, but this is an old-school, savory wine with plenty of tannic bite that deserves some time in the cellar so that peppery licorice complexities can emerge. - Joe Czerwinski

It shows the vintage style with its moderate concentration, yet is fine, elegant and silky, and has a beautiful finish. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade.
