Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2014
The classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a rocking base cuvée that gives up loads of blackberry, licorice and Provencal herbs with a ripe, seamless style. Borderline voluptuous, with medium to full-bodied richness, it is a pleasure-bent effort that should shine on release.”
Exotic and perfumed with iris and violets¸ the nose is highly aromatic, displaying the quintessential Clos St Jean concentration. Intense dark, ripe fruit flavours are abundant on the palate, which is richly textured and glossy whilst not losing the balance of freshness that shows beautifully on the finish, where just a hint of sweet spice teases its way through.
