"Similar to Beaucastel’s top cuvée, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tintot is a Mourvèdre-dominated (there’s 15% Grenache) behemoth that's going to require bottle age. Cured meats, toasted spice, graphite, and leafy herbs all flow to a thick, rich, powerful wine that has building tannins and a great, great finish. I suspect this puppy will shut down quickly, so try a bottle (or two) in the short-term and hide the rest for a good 4-6 years. This cuvée comes all from the Boislauzon lieu-dit, was completely destemmed and brought up all in older barrels."
""Tintot" is the local surname for Mourvedre, used by our grandfather Yves and by other winegrowers 70 years ago. The source of this wine is a parcel situated in Boislauzon. Made principally from old-wine Mourvedre grapes, the Tintot has a solid and dense structure. Fine and elegant, it has an excellent aging potential."- Winery
