Lot #420. Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2015

Description: Consists of 1 Jeroboam, 3L
Score: 94 WA.
"A special cuvée produced for the American importer, Eric Solomon, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is huge. It blends 85% or more concrete-aged Grenache with small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre aged in barrique. The result is a massive wine filled with red fruit. The tannins are ripe to the point of creaminess on the mid-palate then firm up on the long finish. This hides its alcohol better than the regular cuvée and should age longer as a result." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate #233, Oct 2017
Provenance: The Appareil Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $275
