La Bastide St.-Dominique Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hespérides 2017

96 pts Wine Enthusiast
“A 50-50 blend of Grenache and Mourvédre sourced from safre, or sandy soils, this unctuous red fills the palate with plumes of silken raspberry preserves, fresh sage and thyme. Matured 18 months in a combination of stainless steel and oak, it’s a rich, concentrated wine wrapped in firm, fine-tipped tannins. A stunner in youth but powerful enough to mature nicely through 2035 and hold further. ”

“Mulled plum and blackberry fruit mixes with smoldering black tea, singed cedar, anise and mineral flavors. Everything knits nicely through the finish, where the spice and fruit notes linger prettily. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 250 cases made, 20 cases imported.”
