Mestre Chateauneuf-du-Pape rouge 2013 (1.5L)

$69

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 90 points, pointing out its “very good focus,” highlighting notes of “cherry compote,” and “anise.” This opens beautifully over a half hour in a glass or decanter.
