A deep, dark and dense red color. The nose is full of spice and red berries - even notes of jam. On the palate, the wine is complex and powerful, with round tannins and notes of ripe plum, peppery herbs and cherry stone. Overall, an ample, rich wine that manages to maintain purity. Food Pairing: Red meat, game bird and cheese.

Full-bodied, lush, velvety in texture and packed with fruit and garrigue, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape should prove to be Guigal's best Chateauneuf du Pape to date when it's released in 2020.

A fresh, dark-cherry and stone nose with attractive purity of fruit here. The palate has a very succulent, quite grainy and deeply ripe feel with a super rich, concentrated and bold serving of ripe dark plums and blackberries. Tar to close. Impressive. Drink or hold

Lots of lavender, garrigue, peppery herbs, and rocking dark fruits emerge from the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape. With medium to full body, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish, it’s unquestionably an outstanding wine. It’s already hard to resist yet will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise for a decade.
