Violets, cassis and smoke. 64% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 1% Counoise. Vineyard situated in several parts of Chateauneuf-du-Pape called Lea Saintes Vierges, La Font du Pape and La Crau Ouest. On the label we honor Jean XXII. Native of Cahors, he was the first pope to Avignon as residence. As well, he planted the papal vineyards and ordered to build a new castle (chateau neuf) in the place that should become Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Hand picked and sorted, whole bunch fermentation with punching down for gentle extraction. 18 months in oak wooden tanks.

Firm, mineral, and interesting CNDP. Nose is melange of blueberry compote, mulberry, wild raspberry compote, underbrush, dried roses, potpourri, spice cake, thyme, tar, baked earth and gravel. Palate is savory, herbal, and mineral driven. Matches nose. Wild black berries, cooked plum, blue tones, menthol, thyme, sage, hot stones. Seems to have a very Gigondas personality to it or maybe just in my head?

This was super Bretty when I opened it, but the palate was beautifully elegant.

I'm a big fan of 2013 CdP, and this delivers. Chateauneuf that's ripe, with acid, structure, and freshness.

Just well balanced and always a good one for any Italian dinner I am cooking. It is an easy favorite for me.
