Mestre Châteauneuf-du-Pape rouge 2016

$34

The appellation of Châteauneuf is only about 12 square miles, but it makes some of the world’s most sought after wine. Christophe Mestre is a small production winemaker who flies under the radar of most of the wine world, but recently his talent and terroir have begun to bring him acclaim. We think his 2016 is among the best he’s produced.

Fans of the appellation used to paying well over $50 for bigger names should take note — this is a rich, classic, mouthfilling Chateauneuf-du-Pape with a remarkably low price tag. The nose is explosive, with a wide range of notes from violets and pan drippings to strawberry jam and lavender. The mouth is smooth and soft and rich, with a dark red complexion and silky tannins.
