Domaine de Pignan Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  473678

Eight different grape varieties from eight different lieux-dits went into this domaine's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape. Aged in a mix of steel, concrete, foudre and barrique, this full-bodied wine is creamy and plush in the mouth, with hints of plum and vanilla up front, but there are savory notes, including some appealing rosemary and licorice, on the long finish. Drink date: 2018-2028. Score - 92. (Joe Czerwinski,, Aug. 31, 2018)
