The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (scheduled to be bottled November 2017) is a very fine, elegant example of Chateauneuf du Pape. Garrigue and violet notes spring forth on the nose, followed by layers of spice, hints of leather and black cherry fruit. It feels lithe and delicate for a full-bodied wine, with a long, silky finish.
Tasted blind. Dark crimson. Heady and ripe. Lots of black cherry fruit and then rather dry tannins on the end. Just a slight lack of density on the mid palate but there is certainly life here.
