Woah! Grenache based (64%) but the (15%) Mourvèdre influences big. Juicy, sweet red fruits... old fashioned cherries and crushed raspberry, cranberry. Touch of cedar and gravel, fresh black pepper. Layered, elegant, opulent.

Warm baguette with whipped butter and lemon. Artichoke, green tomato, grilled pineapple, smoky hog jowl on greens, pretzel dough, basil and capers are bursting from the glass in gaseous form. Medium mouthfeel, buttery and olive-briny, white mushroom, flat-citric lemon oil bordering on curd, and yellow wax beans with water chestnuts and almonds. Nice acidity keeps tho one from becoming sluggish. A full, round mouthful, with plenty to contemplate. Persistent and palate-coating. #CDP #chateauneufdupapeblanc #blanc #frenchwine #popewine #domainedessénéchaux #rhonewine

Very big, very sweet, very alcoholic. Speaks of the hot 2015 vintage. Fruit just slightly stewed or overripe but balanced with a wall of tannin. All components are there for a vg wine, just needs more integration.

Very interesting Rhône Châteauneuf-du-Pape. 64, 19, 15, 1, 1 (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Vaccarese)
Paired excellently with baked chicken and Greek potatoes. Takes about 30 minutes to begin to open then fantastic. Really enjoyed this one.

Silky tannin highly fragrant 2005 chateau neuf. Delicate balance between fruit (pomegranate), marmalade and a hint of star anis. Nicely aging.

Full of fat juicy filthy Grenache. Really great vanilla and cherries. 2nd best CNDP I've had after Domaine Pegau.
