|Domaine Saint Patrice
The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos Saint Patrice shows a great sense of tension and elegance in its combination of ripe cherries and cool herbs. Full-bodied and silky in texture, without any obvious oak, it showcases the finesse and balance the appellation is capable of.
The core of gently mulled plum, cherry and blood orange fruit fans out nicely, with silky but persistent structure underneath and light incense, rooibos tea and shiso leaf accents on the long, stylish finish.
