"A ripe, voluptuous wine that's loaded with sweet kirsch, plum, licorice and garrigue aromas and flavors, Bravay's 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a great example of the vintage. A field blend that's close to 90% Grenache and aged all in tank (it sees no wood whatsoever), it's a gorgeous, naked expression of Grenache that delivers medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a supple, downright sexy profile. While it won't make you run out and sell off your 2007s and 2010s, it's a great wine meant for drinking over the coming 8-9 years. Drink now-2023."
