NOTES & COMMENTS

                This vintage is a selection of our best parcels of old Grenache from Châteauneuf du Pape. These wines offer all at the same time fullness and smoothness, tannic structure and complexity, being powerful and long on the palate.  Within a few years, it will gain in roundness and depth.
