MESTRE Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2012
MESTRE Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016
Christophe Mestre is an up and coming young winemaker from an old Châteauneuf family. His wines are traditional, smooth and easy to enjoy young. Vinous awarded his 2012 91 points, calling it “silky” and “seamless,” and noting its “zesty mineral flourish.” The 2016 is richer and fuller but still beautifully well balanced.
