Moving to the Châteauneuf-du-Pape from bottle, the 2016 vintage was described as having the power of 2010 and similar to yet fresher than 2007. The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers a great bouquet of black raspberries, tapenade, crushed violets, and spring flowers, and shares lots of similarities to the Chaupin cuvée (and it’s less expensive!). Full-bodied, incredibly elegant and seamless, it might be the finest traditional cuvée ever produced from this estate. Jeb Dunnuck

Exuberant blackberry and blueberry notes extend from nose to palate of this powerfully ripe, luscious wine. It's decadent and forward yet full of mineral tension and taut, firm-footed tannins. Fresh fruit flavors are delightful already but this wine will please well through 2040. - Anna Lee, Wine Enthusisast

A lovely beam of cassis and dark plum fruit streams through, laced with anise and graphite notes and driving through a sage brush–accented finish. Shows the ripe, focused, racy feel of the vintage. Best from 2020 through 2030. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits more dark fruit than I would've expected, with black cherries, black olives and tar all mingling on the nose. In the mouth, the blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a lush, lingering finish. Easy to drink now, it should age for at least a decade just on its sheer concentration and ripeness. - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

A deep, savoury nose with a back note of menthol overlaid with detailed bramble and raspberry. The palate has some fairly assertive tannins holding it all together, with good texture and relief. Nicely balanced, lots of detail to enjoy. - Decanter

A creamy, honey-drizzled nose with baked pear, apple and melon fruits. The palate has a creamy, gently spicy and smooth feel to it. Rich but fresh. Drink now. - James Suckling
