Tasting Note: As for the reds from barrel, I found a touch of volatile acidity in all of the barrel samples, as well as a touch less exuberance and concentration than in past vintage. Still, as I hope the scores show, the wines are beautiful. Starting out, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, all from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit. Blueberries, flowers, peach pit and violets all emerge from this full-bodied, expansive, sweetly fruited effort that has supple tannin and excellent purity. Score - 90-92.
