Châteauneuf Du Pape, Southern Rhône

Bosquet des Papes

Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1999

Though likely past it’s peak, that must’ve been something even more special. Took an hour to sort out the rich brambly red fruit, plum sauce and shroomy earth. A real treat. — 4 days ago
