The Grenache dominated 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Gallimardes comes from a tiny parcel of very old vines in the Southern part of the appellation. It offers a touch more richness and depth aromatically compared to the classic cuvée and gives up lots of black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, roasted garrigue, licorice, fruitcake, and incense. It's beautiful on the palate as well and is full-bodied, has a concentrated, layered mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s very much in the style of the vintage and will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 15 years or more.
