The Domaine de Saint Paul Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'L'insolite' is an absolutely spectacular showing in this vintage. This 100% Syrah begins with stunning aromatics of ripe dark plums and dark cherries woven together with pie crust, violets, damp soil, mesquite wood, minerals and rosted herbs all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this possesses a full body with a wonderful rich, plush texture. It continues to impress with remarkable depth and concentration leading up to the long, layered finish which is marked by dark fruits and dark chocolate flavors. The 2015 'L'insolite' has the stuffing to age gracefully, however it is already drinking exceedingly well, and will be open for business upon release.
