In October, 2019, Jim Nejaime visited, tasted extensively with Eric and selected this beautiful Chateauneuf to import in for our clients.
‘An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character.’
“A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah & the balance Mourvedre and Cinsault,
the 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic wine that does everything right. Garrigue, blackberry and kirsch are all present in this medium to full-bodied, ripe, layered & character-filled red. Possessing excellent concentration & balance, it’s a rock-star cuvee to drink over the coming decade.Proprietor & Winemaker Eric Bonnet continues to craft outstanding reds in this great 2018 vintage. His Châteauneuf du Pape are the stars of the show, he makes amazing Rhone red wines of high quality that are worth twice the price!” - SPIRITED Tasting Panel

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.
