Tasting Notes

Similarly colored to the Prestige release, the 2018 Ch√Ęteauneuf Du Pape Les Sables De La Crau is 100% Grenache from sandy soils brought up all in demi-muids. Ripe blueberries, strawberries, flowery incense, and pepper garrigue notes all emerge from this ethereal, elegant, beautifully balanced Grenache that has no hard edges, ripe, sexy tannins, and a great finish. This is another brilliant, layered, seamless wine from this estate that readers will love.
