Intense purple wine. Very complex nose of bursting with sunshine fruits, sweet spices, scrubland and humus. The matter, marked by delicate tannins although solids, intense and ripe offer fruity one. Finale reveals a surprising length endowed with peppered notes. Wine with a lot of roundness and dept with a typical « old vine » tanin structure.

My favorite barrel sample was the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan, which comes from a site just to the north of Rayas, with a similar, yet slightly coarser, soil. Voluptuous, layered and elegant, yet not pulling any punches on the fruit, this beauty is loaded with notions of blueberries, plums, strawberries and violets. It's all fruit at the moment, but this is impressive and will certainly be one of the gems in the vintage.
