A more modern styled cuvée, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Folie is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that’s all from the pebbly soils of the Mont-Redon lieu-dit, from a parcel called “La Folie”. This cuvée is always completely destemmed and brought up mostly in demi-muids, with 10% in new barrels. Black raspberries, graphite, vanilla oak and hints of violets give way to a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated red that has plenty of mid-palate depth and present, yet ripe tannin. It's a beautifully balanced, pleasure-bent effort that will benefit from a year or more of bottle age and keep through 2027. There are a scant 250 cases produced.
