(WA 95-97 points) Full-bodied, yet silky-airy-lacy in texture, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau Ouest is a marvel of elegance and finesse. Wonderfully detailed notes of ripe cherries, dried spices, rose petals and back tea expand on the palate, revealing great intensity, complexity and length. - Joe Czerwinski

Reminding me of a Grand Cru red Burgundy, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau Ouest (all Grenache from sandy soils) offers up a big blast of red fruits, spice, white flowers, and graphite.

Reminding me of a Grand Cru red Burgundy, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau Ouest (all Grenache from sandy soils) offers up a big blast of red fruits, spice, white flowers, and graphite. It’s beautifully detailed, delineated, and pure, with medium body, no hard edges, and a great finish. Shining more for its elegance and purity than power and richness, it’s going to drink brilliantly for 10-15 years.

Ripe and expansive on the nose, displaying powerful dark berry, lavender and garrigue scents along with hints of cola and woodsmoke. Smooth and weighty on the palate, offering plush, sweet black currant and cherry flavors sharpened by a snap of cracked pepper. Becomes livelier with air and finishes very long and gently tannic, leaving a suggestion of candied flowers behind. -- Josh Raynolds
