Long, fresh, clean, refined and concentrated, the wine gets going quickly and stays with you. Purity, elegance, length and complexity are what you'll find here. Give it a few years for the tannins to soften and allow things to come together and this should be an even better wine. The wine was made blending 64% Grenache and 28% Syrah with 8% Mourvedre.

Intense raspberry liqueur, cherry pit, incense, potpourri and spicecake aromas show sharp delineation and pick up a vibrant mineral quality with air. Sweet and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated but lithe black raspberry, cherry pie, five-spice powder and lavender pastille flavors that slowly fan out on the back half. Effortlessly marries richness to finesse and finishes wonderfully long and spicy, with harmonious tannins adding shape and gentle grip. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

Fragrances of vanilla, smoke and violet amplify bold blackberry and plum in this bombastic red wine.

A blend of 64% Grenache, 28% Syrah and 8% Mourvèdre, it's a rich, densely textured wine with a lingering finish marked by Bourbon and coffee notes. Appealing already for its flash, it should gain elegance from 2021 and improve through 2040. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA collapse

95+ A great vintage for this cuvée (and the region as a whole), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Val de Dieu is 64% Grenache, 28% Syrah, and the balance Mourvèdre, all brought up in demi-muids. Fabulous notes of garrigue... expand 95+ A great vintage for this cuvée (and the region as a whole), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Val de Dieu is 64% Grenache, 28% Syrah, and the balance Mourvèdre, all brought up in demi-muids. Fabulous notes of garrigue, new saddle leather, graphite, and assorted sweet red (and some black) fruits give way to a full-bodied, ripe, powerful wine that has remarkable elegance and purity. It's already approachable yet will unquestionably benefit from short-term cellaring and shine for a decade or more. collapse

Brought up exclusively in demi-muids, it does show some toasty accents, but it delivers a lush mouthful of ripe raspberries and vanilla that glides to a lingering, slightly charred finish. - Joe Czerwinski collapse
