Domaine Jérôme Gradassi Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2019

Blend: 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre

Aging: 12 months in neutral French oak barrels, four to ten years old

The opaque ruby color is the first clue that this is Châteauneuf in the tradition of Bonneau and Rayas, not some over-the-top modern sledgehammer. Ripe black and blue fruits stand out on the nose, but they sit right alongside fresh violet, dried herbs, licorice, and woodsmoke. Subtle floral and spice nuances enliven broad, palate-coating cassis and bitter cherry flavors. Rich yet lively wine, with a strong closing punch, supple tannins, and lingering smokiness. Enjoy now or over the next 15+ years with grilled garlicky sausages, fresh tomatoes, fresh cheeses, and roast lamb with oil-cured olives.
