A nice red colour with shiny highlights. On the nose, this Chateauneuf-du-Pape spreads spiced aromas. It has a smooth and delicate mouth. Served at room temperature, this Chateauneuf-du-Pape perfectly matches with game, grilled rib roasts, meats in sauce and cheese.

I think the star of the show in 2018 is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père, which is almost all Grenache. It reveals a medium ruby color as well as a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, dried flowers, incense, and Provençal spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, downright sexy style on the palate. With silky tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it's another 2018 that's loaded with charm and is going to drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Deeper, earthier and spicier than the other bottlings, the 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père is essentially all old-vine Grenache from the La Gardiole lieu dit. Dustings of cinnamon, allspice and clove accent black cherries and loam on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich and velvety, ending long and softly dusty. It should be the longest-lived of the magnificent trio of 2018 reds produced at Bosquet des Papes.
