A modern-day legend in the making is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve from Jean-Paul Daumen, one of the greatest young wines I’ve ever tasted. This Grenache-dominated effort was brought up all in foudre and tastes like the essence of this incredible terroir located on the northern edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Deep purple-colored, with an intoxicating bouquet of black raspberries, crushed herbs, black licorice, spring flowers, and spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, multi-dimensional texture, a huge mid-palate, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. Not far off the style of the Les Trois Sources, yet with another level of concentration, it has a certain accessibility yet won’t be at its best for another 4-5 years, but it will keep for another two decades or more.

Red fruit preserves, potpourri and exotic spices on the powerfully scented nose, which is lifted by a vibrant mineral overtone. Concentrated yet energetic in style, showing outstanding clarity and depth to the raspberry, bitter cherry, spicecake and lavender flavors. This wine's interplay of weight and finesse is quite something. Becomes sweeter on the subtly tannic finish, which shows impressive focus and lingering florality. -- Josh Raynolds
