Here Mounir’s whole-cluster vinification and long élèvage have combined with the immaculately ripe fruit of the 2016 harvest to create a red wine masterpiece. Layers of complex fruit flavors are balanced by a strong backbone of minerality to create a wine of great richness without s trace of excessive weight. The most Burgundian Arioso to date.
Thoroughly beguiling from the get-go, with captivating perfume and a seductive, silky mouthfeel that serves as a canvas for the range of cassis, bitter cherry, blood orange and damson plum fruit flavors infused with rooibos, sandalwood and garrigue. There's a subtle mineral twinge at the very end. A beautiful Burgundian-style Châteauneuf. Drink now through 2036.
The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Arioso is a killer wine. This cuvée is always 100% Grenache sourced from the sandy soils of the Pignan lieu-dit, which is certainly one of the great terroirs of the appellation. Sensational notes of cassis, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers all flow to a deep, layered, seamless 2016 that has the purity and elegance of the vintage as well as fabulous depth and richness. Elegance and purity are the buzzwords here, but it packs ample texture and concentration. It's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and be very long lived.
