Powerful and well-constituted wine, a strong ruby colour with a purple tinge. It gives a complex nose of cinnamon, cooked fruits and morello cherry. After a rich and firm attack, the mouth expresses vanilla and pepery aromas which persist to the final. It's a supple and rich wine with a very good length in mouth. The dominant grenache assure the atypical Chateauneuf du Pape. Chateauneuf du Pape red Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine will improve during 5 to 10 years in a good cellar according to the vintages.

Wine AdvocateThe star of my visit was the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. Produced from 3.5 hectares in three parcels, it's sturdy and muscular in style but shows concentrated Grenache fruit to match the ample tannins. It should start to shine in about five years.
