About

96+

"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."

Product Description:

""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
