The 2016 'Les Safres' Châteauneuf-Du-Pape is a simply gorgeous wine in this vintage. Elegant and refined, this is composed of 95% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, Vaccarèse and Cinsault. As it slowly begins to open it releases pretty aromas of fresh crushed raspberries and red berries, along with minerals, licorice and dried herbs which all take shape. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous medium-body with ultra-silky tannins and incredible concentration with beautifully pure ripe red fruits at its core. Balanced with striking finesse, this simply brilliant in its youth but will go on to become very special.
