I’ve tasted some extraordinary prior vintages of Clos Du Mont-Olivet’s La Cuvée du Papet, but with Jeb Dunnuck’s call of perfection on 2016, my expectations were even higher. Jeb says it’s “pure perfection” and “unquestionably the greatest wine I’ve ever tasted from this estate and is a legendary wine in the making.” And yet it still blew the doors off those expectations. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape wildly outperforms in the following categories: Aromatics, purity of fruit, texture and mouthfeel, layers of complexity, intellectual stimulation, length, and, without question, deliciousness. 100%, wholeheartedly agree with @jebdunnuck “beg, borrow or steal to get a hold of this.” Sexy. Exotic. Spectacular.

Really pleasant texture, unlike other rough/high Alc Chateauneuf’s I’ve tasted.
