Mestre Châteauneuf-du-Pape rouge 2012
6+ price: $32.00
Christophe Mestre is a young winemaker from an old Chateauneuf family, whose talent and terroir have already begun to bring him acclaim. This is delicious, classic Châteauneuf at an astonishingly good price.
The nose is explosive, with a wide range of notes from pan drippings and sage to strawberry jam, wild raspberry, and lavender. The mouth is smooth and soft and rich, with a dark red complexion and sun-baked, silky tannins. Vinous’s Josh Raynolds awarded this wine 91 points, calling it: “suave and silky on the palate, offering seamless red berry liqueur and licorice pastille flavors enlivened by a zesty mineral flourish.”
