I loved the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape, and this is a wine I’d be thrilled to own. Sporting a ruby/plum color as well as a terrific notes of sweet red fruits, herbes de Provence, sweet spice, and garrigue, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a light, elegant mouthfeel, soft tannins, and a great finish. It’s not massive or powerful, but it’s beautifully balanced, elegant, and nuanced. Drink this terrific 2020 any time over the coming 10-12 years. The blend is 54% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, and it was partially destemmed and brought up in a mix of foudre, older barrels, and concrete.
The 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is showing well in this vintage. It is a delicious blend of 54% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 21% Mourvèdre that aged for one year in a combination of foudre, old oak barriques and concrete vats. It mingles aromas of juicy red fruits, a pinch of mint, dried herbs and iodine. Showing absolutely no hard edges, it seamlessly moves across the palate, concluding with a bright finish.
