Intense ruby wine with purple tints. Very intense nose of jammy red fruits, kirsch liqueur and black berries. After aeration, more complexity with notes of laurel, pepper, cardamom and resiny pine forest. Opulent attack in a crunchy style, with full-bodied and elegant.

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.
