Domaine St. Patrice Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Rouge 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine St. Patrice|
The core of gently mulled plum, cherry and blood orange fruit fans out nicely, with silky but persistent structure underneath and light incense, rooibos tea and shiso leaf accents on the long, stylish finish. Drink now through 2027. 50 cases made.
A classic blend of grapes based on 70% Grenache, partial destemming and no new oak for the élevage has left the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape free to express its floral and spice elements. There's lovely purity of red fruit here as well and softly dusty tannins on the finish. It's a charming, elegant wine to drink over the next decade. Drink Date: 2017-2027.
