Clos Saint Jean Chateauneuf du Pape 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Clos Saint Jean|
The lush, fruit-forward 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a good introduction to the domaine's Grenache-dominated style, boasting copious amounts of cherry and apricot fruit. It's full-bodied and velvety in texture, with attractive hints of licorice emerging on the long finish. With its slightly more prominent acidity, it should drink well for longer than the 2015 or 2017 versions. Drink Date: 2018-2030.
