The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Paul-Vincent is going to be beauty! As is normal I was able to taste through numerous foudre of different blends, as well as a foudre of the final blend, all of the samples showed distinct, rich, even opulent profile, terrific purity and ripe backbones. The final cuvee shows the classic sweet core of fruit that’s the hallmark of this estate, as well as notable complexity in its peppery herbs, dried flowers, scorched earth and graphite aromas and flavors. This is a darker fruited cuvee than normal, and I suspect it’s going to rival the 2007 and 2010. - Jeb Dunnuck

Paul-Vincent Avril and I tasted his 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape from several different foudres, including number 30, which he said best approximated the final blend. It boasts everything you could ever want in a full-bodied red: complex garrigue and anise notes, a blend of cherry, peach and blueberry fruit, a lush, creamy texture and a long finish. With its power and concentration, it should age well for at least two decades. - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
