"Similarly colored to the classic cuvée, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Quet is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. It offers a huge, rich, powerful style that never goes over the top and stays balanced and graceful. Currants, toasted spices, caramelized beef, and exotic notes all flow to a massively textured, powerhouse of a wine that has a stacked mid-palate, a bombastic personality, and a great finish. It needs two to three years of bottle age but is an incredible, heady, powerful wine."

An 80-20 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre from the lieux-dits of Bois Lauzon, Cabrières and la Gardiole, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet is chewy and intense, in need of at least a few years in the cellar. Dark, dusky floral notes join big plum fruit on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, richly concentrated and tannic wine.
