About

95+

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance is also a slightly more restrained, elegant version of the cuvée, yet that doesn’t mean it lacks concentration or depth. Terrific notes of black and blue fruits, violets, peppered meats, and licorice all emerge from this full-bodied, tight, backward beauty that’s going to need 4-5 years of bottle age. As normal, the blend is 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, brought up in one-third new oak barrels and the balance in demi-muids.
