La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf du Pape 2018
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||La Bastide Saint Dominique|
Starting the reds with the classic 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape, it checks in as 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre and other varieties, all brought up in a mix of concrete tanks and stainless steel. Its vivid ruby color gives way to impressive notes of blueberries, crushed violets, and spice. With medium-bodied, beautiful elegance and purity, and fine tannins, it's very much in the style of this approachable, upfront, charming vintage. It should certainly be an outstanding wine.
