Vignobles Mayard, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, La Crau de Ma Vieilles Vignes, 2018
Hints of garrigue and crushed stones are bound together by threads of raspberries and dark chocolate in the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape la Crau de Ma Mere, which is largely derived from old-vine Grenache grown in La Crau. Full-bodied, generous and silky in texture, it's a ripe, seamless effort that should drink well for up to a decade.
