2016 Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Pere....$64.99

There are 10,000 bottles of the stunning 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père, which is good news for lovers of 100% Grenache. Drawn from a single parcel in the lieu-dit of Gardiole (mostly sandy soils), half of the fruit was destemmed. It's full-bodied and concentrated but silky and refined, with scintillating purity of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by crisp acids and enlivening hints of orange zest on the long, reverberating finish. It's a terrific value that should drink well for more than a decade.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate

Made from 100% Grenache that was partially destemmed, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père is straight up awesome looking barrel sample. Sporting a deep ruby color and perfumed notes of strawberries, incense, Asian spices and dried garrigue, this beauty is full-bodied, layered, and opulent on the palate, yet with no weight and a graceful, balanced style. It has fine tannins which are still mostly covered by loads of fruit at this stage. It’s going to be hard to resist on release, yet should have two decades of longevity.
