Domaine de Beaurenard, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2017, 375ml
A second consecutive winner from this fine estate, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is 66% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Cinsault and 3% of the other permitted varieties. Grilled red plums lead off, fleshed out by other ripe stone fruits. Full-bodied and plush, it's creamy in texture through the mid-palate, then long and silky on the finish, where it picks up hints of Asian five spice powder.
