Chateau de Vaudieu 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
Even Vadieu's "regular" CdP is excellent. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape, an 80-20 blend of Grenache and Syrah mostly aged in concrete, offers ripe red raspberry and apricot notes alongside delicate hints of spice and garrigue. Full-bodied and lush, it shows off wonderfully ripe Grenache fruit without much in the way of other adornment or artifice, finishing long and silky.
Score: 93 points -- Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, 2018
