There’s a beautiful purity of fresh, mixed berries, dark plums, deep spices, as well as a gentle, coal-smoke edge. The palate has an effortless, fleshy, fine-grained texture with long, majestic tannins and a long, black-cherry finish Such purity and depth, pulling a lot of flavor with perfectly balanced acidity. Equal parts of old and young vine parcels here. No wood. The real deal. Drink now or hold.

(96-98)While the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape isn’t in bottle yet, my money is on it being one of the finest wines Philippe Bravey has ever made.

(96-98)While the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape isn’t in bottle yet, my money is on it being one of the finest wines Philippe Bravey has ever made. Based on 87% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, Syrah, Bourboulenc, and Cinsault, brought up all in concrete, this awesome wine boasts a huge nose of garrigue, currants, lavender, and exotic flowers. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, a stacked, layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster texture, it nevertheless stays seamless and elegant, with no sense of weight or heaviness. It reminds me of a slightly more elegant 2007.

The full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort from Domaine de Ferrand. Nearly 90% Grenache, with the balance a blend of other permitted varieties, it's concentrated and rich, with hints of allspice, anise and pepper adding nuance to the layers of ripe cherry and apricot fruit. Complex and velvety, this has it all.-JC

High-pitched cherry and candied lavender scents pick up Asian spice and smoky mineral flourishes with air. Sweet, densely packed red fruit preserve and spicecake flavors stain the palate, and a jolt of juicy acidity adds vivacity, firm cut and lift. Fine-grained tannins make a late appearance and lend frame and grip to a strikingly long, floral-tinged finish.-JR
