Exclusive to Dan Murphy's
Michel Chapoutier produces a wonderful, modern style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape here with a forboding Grenache and Syrah (Shiraz) blend that has lashing of blackcurrant, fig and licquorice root. A wonderful balance between power and elegance.
The classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape bottle shape is a winner, as is the Wine. Flavours of cassis and cherry with a rounded complex and deceptively long, minerally palate. The Wine is soft and juicy enough to drink young, however equally it has the structure to evolve positively over 5 - 10 years.'

From one of the finest vintages in the last few decades, this is a lovely modern interpretation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Dark fruits, fig, blackcurrant and liquorice root abound, with lavender and savoury aspects. Powerful yet silky.

Dan Murphy's Wine Panel
Ripe stewed fruits perhaps rhubarb and touches of pepper/capsicum on the nose. Attacks the palate with controlled intensity. Slinky tannins that roll around the mouth. Finish goes on and on.
