93

Prominent notes of vanilla, smoke and cinnamon extend from nose to finish in this bold, hedonistic Grenache-Syrah blend. A flashy, outspoken wine it maintains a vibrant core of ripe blackberry and mulberry flavors lifted by menthol and anise. Opulent but neatly integrated, the wine finishes on long, chalky tannins. Drink now–2035.

Product Description:

Vignobles & Compagnie is a small winery located in one of the warmest climates in Chateauneuf du Pape. The unique soil and microclimate here makes for an intense and complex style of Chateauneuf du Pape.

The wine is very dark with notes of bruised plum, currants, and blackberry. The earthiness from the pebbly like soil is very noticeable, and the rich finish of spice from the oak is there as well. This is a VERY full bodied style in a near perfect vintage.

You can open it now if you would like with a heavy decant, but this wine will get better over the next decade.

We can't express enough how great the 2016 vintage was in Chateauneuf du Pape, and this is just another wine you can add to your already great collection!
