|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine de la Charbonniere|
Wine SpectatorA rich, yet silky and suave, style, with raspberry pâte de fruit and mulled red currant flavors infused heavily with incense, dried anise and black tea notes. The long finish shows a sandalwood echo and a well-buried mineral hint. So charming, this is approachable now, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2030. 1,950 cases made.
Wine AdvocateBlended from eight separate parcels, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a forward, supple, lush wine that's already approachable. Cherries and stone fruit appear upfront and on the mid-palate, while hints of spice mark the finish. This classic blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre should drink well for another decade.
