Tasting Notes

Coming from sandy soils next to Rayas, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape le Grand Pin is a fresher, more focused and linear example of this cuvee. Showing sappy pine bush, Christmas spice and mint in its core of kirsch and blackberry fruit, it flows onto the palate with a seamless, elegant profile that carries fine tannin and bright acidity. It’s a finesse-drive effort, and while I’d like more backend depth and richness, it should evolve nicely through at least 2022.
