Domaine Des 3 Cellier Châteauneuf du Pape Alchimie Red 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine Des 3 Cellier|
Kirsch, menthol, leafy herbs, and some underlying green notes all emerge from the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Alchimie. It's medium to full-bodied, juicy, and elegant, with a vibrant, pretty edge. The blend is mostly Grenache, with 16% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties, brought up all in foudre.
Deep ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice and succulent herbs on the nose and in the mouth. Broad and fleshy in style, showing good heft and a sweetening touch of cola on the warm, supple finish, which is given shape by rounded, slow-building tannins.
