Domaine du Grand Tinel$52.00
Chateauneuf du Pape
"Cuvee Alexis Establet"
100% Grenache, 100+ year old vines. “The essence” of Grenache: strawberry jam, white pepper, ripe raspberries, lavender, tarragon. Fine tannins, medium acidity, fantastic Rhone perfume, intense. Enjoy this full-flavored CdP with roast chicken or squab (roasted over an open fire if you can). Aged 12 months in neutral oak barrels.
Jeb Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate, October 2014: "A knockout effort that has fabulous fruit intensity, medium to full-bodied richness and a sexy, voluptuous style. Coming all from 100+-year-old Grenache vines planted in sand and pebble soils, and aged 12 months in foudre and oak tanks, it gives up notions of black raspberry, mulled blackberries, crushed flowers and herbes de Provence. Already reasonably approachable, enjoy it over the coming decade."
