Julien Masquin Châteauneuf du Pape Mémora 2013
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Mémora checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that comes from the sandy soils of the Pignan and Les Cassanets lieux-dits. Raised all in ancient foudres, it offers copious amounts of blackberry, damp earth and ground pepper notes in its medium-bodied, taunt, if not crunchy feel on the palate. It's a solid, workhorse-styled 2013 to enjoy over the coming 5-8 years.
