This is quite elegant and fine, with beautiful definition and delicacy and purity of dark fruit. Nice tapenade and impressive, silky depth and tannins. Mineral and long. 60% Grenache, under 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Counoise. Very spicy and profound.
The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources is straight-up sensational and isn’t far off the more expensive Reserve cuvée in style and quality. Huge notes of blackcurrants, black raspberries, crushed violets, licorice, and incredible minerality, as well as a smoking floral quality, all soar from the glass of this full-bodied, seamless, pure wine that readers should snatch up. With good acidity, awesome purity, and a great, great finish, it's an incredible wine any way you look at it. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades or more.
