L’ESPRIT DE MAUCOIL À L’HONNEUR – WINE CELLAR

WINE CELLAR INSIDER - JEFF LEVE 

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.
