Les Cailloux 2016 - Wine Advocate - Châteauneuf du Pape - Joe Czerwinski

I've tasted many vintages of the Brunels' wines, and 2016 looks as if it will be their best ever.

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape stood out in my blind tasting, offering incredible complexity and lightness despite being full-bodied.

Roses, garrigue and dried spices accent raspberries and cherries in a wine that's concentrated and intense yet agile, with nuances galore. It's 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault and will have aged 18 months (mainly in concrete) prior to bottling. Let's hope this looks just as good then.
