A beautiful clean ruby color. The nose will reveal aromas of cherry, mulberry and fine spices. Sensual mouthfeel expressing depth and smoothness with aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant, followed by fine spices such as thyme, liquorice and white pepper. Tannins are present but are polished and silky. Complex wine with roundness, power and a long mouthfeel. This wine will match very well with red meat, such as beef and game, but also with cheeses.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Crous Saint Martin Hommage A L'An 1879 (80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre) is rock solid, with a sexy yet fresh style that's already a joy to drink. Sweet black raspberries, cherries, spring flowers, and spice all flow to a medium to full-bodied, seamless red that has polished tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It has the ripe, sexy style of the vintage, yet still holds onto a terrific sense of freshness and elegance. It's a complex beauty that will keep for 10-15 years.

Wine AdvocateMinty and herbal up front, the 2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Crous Saint Martin Hommage à l'An 1879 develops attractive flavors of Queen Anne cherries on its full-bodied palate. The blend is 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. There's a bit of astringency on the long finish, but give it a few years in the cellar, and it should be fine. For my money, I'd go with the Gigondas this vintage.
