|CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE 2016 AC
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Very deep intense purple colour. Complex, slightly spicy, bright, ripe, plum-cherry purée nose with some very fairly bitter, hints of red apple. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, complex, intense, ripe, plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, faintly earthy, mineral-tinged finish. This ACTUAL blend of 75% Grenache,15% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre and 3% Muscardin (the 93-point tasting note in the Vintages Catalogue is wrong) has 15.5% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar with lot number L100319 on the lower part of the glass bottle.

|TASTING NOTE: From a great vintage for Chante Perdrix, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beauty. Ripe cherries and raspberries mingle easily on the nose, picking up hints of smoke and citrus for complexity. The blend is 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Muscardin, raised in a combination of foudres, demi-muids and old barrels. Full-bodied, rich and creamy in texture, with a long, silky finish, it should drink well for over a decade. Drink Date: 2018-2030. Score - 93 (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, Aug. 31, 2018)
