|CNDP, Grand Veneur||2005||Rhone||12 x 75cl||£240||1||93 WA|
The 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape is comprised of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Aged 16 months in mostly concrete tanks (30% in barrels), its inky ruby/purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and gorgeously pure, this is high-class stuff that’s still just at the early stages of maturity. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade.
