Really good Chateauneuf-du-Pape, word is that 2016 is a legendary vintage and trying this I would say I’ve never experienced such a young wine of this varietal with so much depth and complexity. Great nose, really smooth on the palate and loads of cherry, spice, leather and floral elements with a hint of Pernod style aniseed on the finish. For $45 I think this is outstanding, it has a high alcohol content for French wine so may not be a long termer but it’s great so just enjoy now.
