Lychee, citrus blossom, apricot, fresh flowers and hints of mint all give way nice round profile and a beautiful freshness. Nice minerality too. The estate was built close to a natural spring where wolves from the Mont Ventoux went to drink. This is the origin of the estate’s name: The fountain of the wolves.
35% Rousanne, 35% Grenache blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulene
Black cherries, peppery garrigue, and assorted floral nuances all define the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape, another remarkably elegant, pure, finesse-driven wine from this estate. I love its tannins, it's perfectly balanced, and it will shine for a solid 10-15 years if well stored. The blend is 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, brought up mostly in concrete tanks.
