Color: The color is ruby red with blue highlight. Nose: We have a very intense nose of ripe fruits, cherry and blueberry jam, delicately spiced (sweet pepper), generous and harmonious. Palate: The mouth is creamy and sweet at first. There's an interesting compromise in mid-tasting between freshness and fat. We notice a very nice persistence, and the tannins are of a rare finesse, all the while being remarkably well structured. A great and generous Châteauneuf du Pape, elegant and complex. Food Pairings: Game animals or feathered game, meats red, exotic meals, spicy food, cheese, desserts with chocolate.

Wine AdvocateMore approachable young than the 2015 version, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Elisabeth Chambellan Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Mourvèdre, all grown in the la Crau lieu-dit. Aged in a combination of foudre (20%) and concrete (80%), it shows plenty of ripe Grenache character, including hints of peanut skin and stone fruit. It's full-bodied and creamy textured, with a hint of leather on the finish. Already drinking well, it should continue to do so for another decade.
