Châteauneuf-du-Pape is famously the strongest, most powerful, and longest-lived wine of the southern Rhône. Louis Barruol's Châteauneuf-du-Pape from contracted growers is a classic expression of the region with aromas and flavors of cherry, thyme, lavender, truffle, and olives. Grenache is the pale-colored, red-fruited, and potpourri-scented red grape variety of the southern Rhône and can be paired with both rustic and sophisticated dishes. Full-bodied Grenache-based wines are ideal with stews, braises, and grilled meats, while lighter versions can work well with dark fish and tomato-based dishes such as ratatouille.

Wine AdvocateBlended, but still aging in barrel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape will likely be bottled in March 2019. Brandied cherries and dried spices mark the nose of this full-bodied, plush wine. It's slightly warm, and certainly rich, but it remains fresh and long on the finish. It should be a beauty.

Wine EnthusiastWhiffs of dried sage, bramble, vanilla and spice accent plum and black-cherry flavors in this hedonistic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Rounded and luscious, it has soft acidity and pliant, feathery tannins but maintains a mineral freshness that lingers on the finish. It's a forward but elegant wine to enjoy now through 2028.

Wine SpectatorFeatures a core of steeped red and black currant and raspberry fruit, inlaid with singed cedar, mesquite and chestnut accents. Shows a grippy edge on the finish, with strong mineral and tobacco components lingering. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,000 cases made, 640 cases imported.
