Domaine GRAND VENEUR Chateauneuf du Pape 2012
Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France
Grape: 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre
Tasting notes: Floral, garrigue notes mark the nose of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Miocene. This full-bodied wine has ripe black cherry fruit, creamy tannins, tremendous power and length but loss of detail or precision. Licorice and almost amaro-like notes linger on the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Expert Rating: Wine Advocate: 93/100
