La Revue du Vin de France: "From a very ripe vintage, its fragrance ranges from black fruit to a note of fig. On the palate, this translates into smooth fruit, texture and supple tannins. A very beautiful, rich and well balanced wine."

Starting with the 2019s from barrel, the classic 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape is a Grenache-dominated blend with small amounts of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault. Deep ruby/purple-hued with a killer bouquet of black raspberries, cassis, candied violets, and peppery garrigue, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, seamless texture, sweet tannins, and a big finish. It displays the purity, balance, and class of the 2019 vintage and is going to drink nicely for 10-15 years.
