La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hesperides 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||La Bastide Saint Dominique|
I was disappointed by the showing of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Hesperides, a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre that's aged in a combination of demi-muids and stainless steel. Firm tannins frame baked, pruney fruit flavors, so if you're more forgiving of those, you may like it more than I did.
