About

97+

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape L'Avenue is all Grenache sourced from a single parcel near the estate and aged 18 months in demi-muids. This deeply colored beauty boasts a huge perfume of black raspberries, blackberries, dried flowers, bouquet garni, and sandy/loamy soil notes. With a powerful, concentrated, structured style, incredible purity of fruit, and tons of tannin on the finish, hide bottles for 3-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following decade or more.

Product Description:

In pursuit of more terroir-based cuvées from his 70 hectares of vines, Laurent Brechet created L’Avenue, a Châteauneuf-du-Pape made from 100% Grenache grown primarily on a sandy terroir of decomposed red sandstone. This terroir makes for an expressive and vibrant style of Grenache and one when tasted along side Amiral G, is a masterclass in seeing how terroir in Châteauneuf-du-Pape really matters.
