M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf du Pape La Bernardine 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
The entry-level Chateauneuf du Pape release is the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine, which is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre that was completely destemmed and will be brought up all in concrete tanks. This ruby/purple colored beauty gives up lots of black raspberry, garrigue and floral aromas and flavors to go with a medium to full-bodied, impressively concentrated, impeccably balanced profile on the palate. It's another 2015 that might be a best to date, and it will shine right out of the gate.
