Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Tradition 2015

Domaine Jean Royer

229,00 DKK

Beskrivelse

Fantastisk traditionel Chateauneuf lavet på 75% Grenache, resten fordelt på Syrah, Mourvedre og Cinsault. Vinen er et virkeligt best buy i top Chateauneuf du Pape og er faktisk vurderet til at være på højde eller bedre end mange af de traditionelle topnavne i kommunen. Domaine Jean Royer

Deep red. A perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, peppery spices and smoky minerals, plus a hint of lavender that builds in the glass. Vibrant raspberry and floral pastille flavors deepen and expand with air while maintaining vivacity. Silky tannins meld smoothly with the juicy fruit on the long, penetrating, racy finish, which repeats the floral note. Vinous:  91/93 Josh Raynolds

Om Producenten

Vi mener at Jean Marie Royer idag laver en af de absolut bedste Chateauneuf du Pape’s I meget traditionel stil som Rayas og Charvin . I de seneste ratings hos Vinous finder man ham med lige så gode rating eller bedre end så kendte huse som Beaucastel, Pierre Ussiglio og andre- Så Jean Marie er i den absolutte elite i Chateauneuf du Pape. At han så tilmed er en utrolig flink og festlig fyr er kun en tilgift! Vingården er ikke stor (4,5 hkt ) og der laves både rød og hvid vin. Kendetegnende for hans vine er en ufattelig koncentration + elegance. En del af ”hemmeligheden” er +100 år gamle vinstokke . Endnu koster vinen ikke i nærheden af Rayas og Charvin. Og godt for det ! Always among the most elegant examples of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, regardless of vintage, the 2015s here show a more broad-shouldered character than usual, which is no surprise given the vintage. That said, they still stood out in my tastings for their fresh fruit and relatively light touch, much as was the case in other recent warm vintages like 2009 and even torrid years like 2007 and 2003. In fact, one could argue that those vintages favor owner/winemaker Jean-Marie Royer’s style as the wines’ typical spiciness and intense fruit character is amplified by the increased ripeness of the fruit. These are Châteauneufs for Burgundy lovers and, in fact, I have fooled more than a few avid Burgophiles with cooler vintage Royers like the ‘04s, 06s and ‘08s over the last few years into thinking that they were drinking Pinot Noir, such is the vibrant red fruit character and florality of those bottlings.
