TASTING NOTES:

Similarly colored to the traditional cuvée, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Baron has rocking aromas and flavors of garrigue, kirsch liqueur, dried flowers, and spice. Deep, medium to full-bodied, elegant and weightless on the palate, it's the finest example of this cuvée since the 2003. The blend is 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% Mourvèdre. Despite the high Syrah component, it just screams Grenache.
- Jeb Dunnuck, 94 pts

This is a jubilantly fruity, concentrated wine full of succulent blackcherry and blackberry flavors. Its primary, pristine fruit quality is immediately appealing, accentuated by fine, mouthcoating tannins and a lusciously clingy mouthfeel. Delightful already it should hold through 2030.
 - Wine Enthusiast, 93 pts

This is well-built, offering a ripe and racy feel to the mix of cassis, cherry, red licorice and singed apple wood notes. Shows lots of energy throughout, with a bright mineral streak scoring the finish. Very fresh. Drink now through 2030.
- Wine Spectator, 92 pts

Similar to the regular cuvée, just a bit more concentrated and tannic, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron is a blend of 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre. Cherry and leather notes dominate this full-bodied, slightly chewy wine. Give it a year or two in bottle to round into form, then drink it over the next decade.
