The 2016 'Domaine du Père Pape' in another outstanding wine from Mayard. Beginning with aromas of fresh black raspberries and dark cherries which come together herbs, licorice, chocolate and spices. On the palate this possesses a wonderful full body with a rich, voluptuous texture with excellent depth and concentration. The plush core is layered with flavors of ripe dark fruits and spices which expand through the finish. This is already outstanding, but should continue to develop beautifully over the course of the next decade.
