2017 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (PRE-ARRIVAL)
Avalible on pre-arrival
Jeb Dunnuck 97-99 points! The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be a huge success and reminds me of the 2007 (which he gave 100 points to). As is normal, Vincent keeps multiple foudres with different blends (as well as a foudre of the final blend), and it's always incredibly educational tasting through the different barrels. The final blend has a classic, sweet bouquet of kirsch, spices, and garrigue, and it's full-bodied, deep, and thrillingly concentrated on the palate. The blend is shifted more toward Mourvèdre due to the tiny quantity of Grenache in the vintage, which makes me think this cuvée might close down shortly after bottling, but it's upfront and incredibly expressive today.
