Crous St. Martin Chateauneuf Du Pape 2016

SKU 05494


A beautiful clean ruby color. The nose will reveal aromas of cherry, mulberry and fine spices. Sensual mouthfeel expressing depth and smoothness with aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant, followed by fine spices such as thyme, liquorice and white pepper. Tannins are present but are polished and silky. Complex wine with roundness, power and a long mouthfeel. This wine will match very well with red meat, such as beef and game, but also with cheeses.

Wine AdvocateCrous St Martin's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is 80% Grenache, with the balance split between Mourvèdre and Syrah. Aged in concrete and older barrels, it's full-bodied and creamy-ripe in texture, with notes of mixed cherries, cinnamon and mocha. It's supple and smooth from start to finish, but it should have the stuffing to age for a decade.
