Chateauneuf du Pape Les Apotres 2017 BIO
The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Apotres was made in amphora, with four months of maceration. Based on Grenache, it includes a high proportion of other traditional varieties, including some white grapes. It's exquisitely perfumed, with enchanting scents of strawberries, roses, garrigue and black tea. Full-bodied but delicate and silky in feel, it builds on the finish, like a great Burgundy. With only 3,000 bottles produced (and none in 2018), it will be hard to track any down but well worth the hunt.
