COUP DE COEUR GUIDE HACHETTE

FR Château MAUCOIL - Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge Tradition 2015

Raised partly in barrels, this wine offers a very dark, almost black color. The nose evokes rosemary, ripe cherry and prune. The palate, round, smooth, powerful without heaviness, offers melted and velvety tannins and a long spicy finish. A châteauneuf harmonious and silky devil, but still in its early youth.

Give him more time. 2021-2030

Châteauneuf-du-Pape - Esprit de Maucoil 2016 : 93/100

Rich, peppery and fresh, there is a minerality that adds to the complexity, along with olives, garrigue, plum and cherry notes. The wine is full, round and forward, with lots of spicy, sweet fruit in the finish. The wine was produced using a Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre blend that includes various other allowable grape varieties.
