2017 Bosquet des Papes "A la Gloire de Mon Grand Père" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1442714 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 A blend of 98% Grenache and 1% each of Cinsault and Clairette, brought up in demi-muids and foudre, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Pere has a rocking, medium to full-bodied, layered style as well as notes of kirsch, dried earth, ground pepper, and garrigue. This is another sexy, seamless, layered wine from this estate that's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and shine for a decade.  (8/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Because of its rich tannic structure, I expect the 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père to be among the longer-lived wines from this estate. It's loaded with concentrated notes of plums, raspberries and cherries, all delivered on a full-bodied, velvety palate and ending with chewy tannins and salted licorice. (JC)  (8/2019)

Jancis Robinson

 Meaty, beefy nose with ample bramble fruit in support. Attractive spicing on the palate with a lengthy milk-chocolate character on the finish. Chalky tannic feel will allow fairly early drinking. 17+/20 points. Drink 2020-2030. (RH)  (11/2018)

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
Specific Appellation:

Chateauneuf du Pape
