2015 Château de la Font du Loup Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1320959 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The grapes for Font du Loup's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape weren't destemmed, and it shows in the wine's pretty, garrigue-scented floral aromas. Ripe cherries take over on the full-bodied, creamy-supple palate, ending on a bright, berry-like finish. This is deceptively easy to drink already, but it should evolve gracefully for up to 15 years. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Outer quote mark The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from is a fresh, elegant expression of this cooler terroir. Strawberries, wildflowers and hints of spice all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant and polished 2015 that has sweet tannin and a light, weightless texture. It's already delicious, yet will keep for over a decade give its balance. (JebDunnuck.com) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

K&L Notes

Anne-Charlotte Mélia Bachas' vineyards stretch across the lieux-dits of Font du Loup and La Crau (made famous for the vines of Vieux Telegraphe and Henri Bonneau) in the village of Courthézon. The soils are typically covered in the large galets sitting over loam and the limestone deep beneath the surface but Anne-Charlotte's vines sit upon the even more desirable sandy soils of the region. She attributes the more savory complex nuances found in her wines to these special soils. The average age of her vines exceed 50 years and the composition of the wine is primarily Grenache with small amounts of Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsualt rounding out the blend. The wines of Font du Loup are quite under the radar but the pedigree is truly remarkable.
