Lot #488. Jean Royer Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Sables de la Crau 2015

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JD.
"The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Sables de La Crau is 100% Grenache from the sandy part of the famed La Crau lieu-dit. It offers terrific notes of wild strawberries, currants, dried flowers and spice, full-bodied richness, sweet, polished tannin and a great finish. While this vintage was difficult for the sandy terroirs, this cuvée is impressive! Vigneron Jean-Marie Royer pulls from a number of prime terroirs, most consisting of sandy soils. While 2015 was challenging for the sandier parts of the appellation, he’s turned out a bevy of beautiful wines." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Oct 2017
