Château Fortia 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Du Baron
Southern Rhone Valley France
Jeb Dunnuck 91-93 Rating
More kirsch, black cherries, garrigue, cracked pepper, and violets emerge from the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Du Baron, which displays a slightly more classic Grenache character, medium to full body, terrific purity, and a great finish. It's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade. This cuvée is 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 15% Mourvèdre, brought up in a mix of foudre and tank.
Must be ordered.
