Tasting Notes

Possessing more depth and richness, yet less precision and focus, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Guigasse is a bigger, richer, broader wine. Black cherries, flowers, Asian spice and resinous notes all emerge from this full-bodied, ripe effort that has ample texture and fat, and a great finish. Like the Grand Pin, this cuvée is 100% Grenache, is not destemmed, and is brought up all in demi-muids.

The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape La Guigasse comes from the lieu-dit of the same name, a cool, sandy site. This 100% Grenache features anise and cinnamon on the nose, lush fruit, a silky mouthfeel and a long, slightly warm finish sizzling with pepper and licorice. I'm not sure how long it will age, but it's delicious now, so why wait?
