Made from mostly Grenache, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père is another beauty that's up with the crème de las crème of the vintage. Kirsch, strawberries, dried flowers and spice notes give way to a full-bodied, supple, sexy red that has sweet tannin and a great finish. While it's a big, rich wine, it glides across the palate and is never heavy. It should keep for 10-15 years. This estate is managed by the larger than life Nicolas Boiron and his wines span the gauntlet from very traditional and old-school (Chante le Merle) to polished and modern (La Folie). This common theme across all the releases is incredibly high-quality

Bosquet des Papes was successful across the board in 2015, as all of the four wines stood out in my blind tastings. My favorite (by a nose) was the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grandpere, which is 98% Grenache. On top of its lovely floral and cherry aromas, the mid-palate boasts incredible lushness and suppleness, then adds in complex spice elements. It's long, silky and only the slightest bit warm on the finish. It should make it to 2030, but there's no real need to wait.

The 2015 'Gloire de Mon Grand-Pere' is a brilliant wine from Bosquet des Papes. The blend of 98% Grenache, 2% Cinsault begins with inviting aromas of raspberries and kirsch cherries woven together with pastille florals, licorice and and an intense stony character. On the palate this is beautifully structured and refined, with a gorgeous silky texture and wonderful concentration. This will ultimately require more bottle age before begins to show its best, nonetheless an absolutely gorgeous wine that will have a wonderful future ahead. (Best 2021-2035)

(made with 50 percent whole clusters) Deep ruby. Powerful red and dark berry aromas are complicated by hints of smoky minerals, incense and lavender, and a subtle hint of white pepper develops with air. Juicy and concentrated yet lithe, offering sappy black raspberry, cherry compote and floral pastille flavors and a touch of allspice. The long, focused finish features resonating floral and dark berry notes and pliant tannins that emerge slowly and steadily.
