The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Les Hautes Brusquières (60/40 Grenache and Syrah) comes from a cooler terroir near the Mount Redon plateau and was brought up in oak tronconique tanks and demi-muids. Its dense purple, almost opaque hue is followed by a brilliant perfume of mulled red and black fruits, peppery herbs, crushed stone, violets, and licorice. With full-bodied richness, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, and just about perfect tannins, it's another superstar wine from this estate that's up with the finest vintages to date.

Brimming with sweet plums, but also plenty of meatiness and licorice on the nose. Powerful and very concentrated, thanks to the full, plush tannin on the spicy palate, this an extremely structured Chateauneuf made for long-term aging. However, the balance is so good you could drink it right away. Very long, velvety finish. Drink or hold

This year, my favorite of the four 2019s from this fine estate is the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale, which emerges from a single parcel of galets roulés planted to a 60-40 mix of Grenache and Syrah. Partially destemmed, it reveals some herbal, stemmy elements on the nose, giving a sense of freshness to the super-ripe black cherry fruit, plus ephemeral notions of tea leaves and rose petals. Full-bodied, silky and concentrated, this wine is long and complex on the finish, with hints of dark chocolate, plum, and red berries. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.

The wine shows a bright ruby colour with a brightening rim. The nose is slightly restrained, the wine will benefit from being decanted. It opens up with notes of ripe and even overripe red cherries, a touch of strawberries and a hint of raspberry compote, as well as a touch of garrigue and rosemary in the echo, as well as a delicate hint of black pepper. The palate is juicy, intense and concentrated, with elevated alcohol, balanced by a nice freshness and bold but polished tannins. It reveals sweet and gourmet nuances of juicy red cherries and baked strawberries, a hint of dried herbs and tobacco, light herbal bitterness on the finish. Bold and powerful but well-balanced and juicy wine.
