Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge ‘Les Trois Sources' La Vieille Julienne 2015/16/17
La Vieille Julienne, Châteauneuf du Pape
What will easily be one of the top wines in the vintage, the Châteauneuf du Pape Les Trois Source is the finest example of this cuvée I've tasted. Just massively concentrated and voluptuous, with a huge mid-palate and sweet tannin, it has off the hook notes of black licorice, roasted herbs, black raspberries, blueberries and crushed flowers. While this is a seriously big wine, everything is perfectly balanced, it has no hard edges and a finish that won't quit. It too will have 20-25 years of longevity.
Grapes:80% Old Vine Grenache, 18% Syrah/Cinsault, 2% Counoise
