Chapoutier 2016 Chateauneuf-Du-Pape La Bernardine Rouge


"Murmurs of burnt cinnamon and leather accent brisk raspberry and sour-cherry preserves in this powerful but elegant Grenache (augmented by 5% each of Syrah and Mourvédre). Tasted in January 2021, its red-fruit flavors are still pure and vibrant, but reveal inflections of earth, smoke and fur. Plush tannins and a wisp of heat linger on the finish. Seductive now, the wine should continue to improve through 2035 and hold further." Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

"Rich but gentle-edged, with an open-knit core of warmed raspberry coulis, cherry preserve and blood orange flavors, laced with sandalwood, shiso leaf and lavender notes. Features a lightly dusty finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2030." Wine Spectator 92 Points
