Crous St Martin Chateauneuf-du-Pape 750ml
A beautiful clean ruby color. The nose will reveal aromas of cherry, mulberry, and fine spices. Sensual mouthfeel expressing depth and smoothness with aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant, followed by fine spices such as thyme, licorice, and white pepper. Tannins are present but are polished and silky. Complex wine with roundness, power, and a long mouthfeel.
Professional ReviewRobert Parker: 91 Points
The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape is 80% Grenache, with the balance split between Mourvèdre and Syrah. Hints of tar appear upon opening, but subside and give way to plums, black cherries and hints of black olive and mocha. It's full-bodied and velvety in texture, showing plenty of muscle for a 2018 on the dusty finish.
