The Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'Alexis Establet' from Domaine du Grand Tinel is absolutely fantastic in this vintage. This 100% old-vine Grenache slowly begins to release profound aromas of ripe red berries and red cherries, which are woven together with violets, earthy, leather and spices. On the palate this is medium-bodied and elegant, with a gorgeous mouthfeel. It continues to impress with its outstanding focus and concentration, as layers of ripe red fruits expand through the palate and linger beautifully on the ultra-long finish. Readers should plan on allowing this another 3-5 years of bottle age before it begins to show its best stuff.
